"While in spite of the favourable signs, Fidesz and government-party voters cannot be complacent about the final outcome of the elections, the Socialists’ desperate reactions seem to indicate that they have already given up on victory."
"For people this famous could always be forgiven for acting quite the asshole every once in a while. Of yore as today."
"In those heady days of 1956 I saw the gentler, dreaming qualities of man, as did Arendt. But also saw the darker side of man. It revealed itself in the ferocity of Kádár’s revenge."
"It took no more than a handshake, and I was immediately captivated by that voice, powerful but warm and full of emotion rather than simply upbeat. Meeting Lukács is always an easy, no-frills affair..."
"Szent-Iványi was both witness and principal actor in Hungary’s very great tragedy. His documents and descriptions of those weeks and months are valuable for us..."
"Who dug the White Sea Canal?" "The right bank was dug by those who related anecdotes." "And the left bank?" "By those who listened."
"Europeans need to work together to make a difference anywhere outside Europe. This means pooling our efforts and resources and insights."
"Horthy in his Memoirs wrote that when Hitler told him that Germany would occupy Hungary, he should have shot the dictator. Why did he not do that, he had a pistol on him..."
"'Yes', replied Clemenceau, 'future historians will say many things that we today might disagree with. But ...they will not say... that Belgium invaded Germany...' They do not say that Hungary occupied Germany."
