|A statesman cannot create anything himself. He must wait and listen until he hears the steps of God sounding through events; then leap up and grasp the hem of his garment.
– Otto von Bismark (1815-1898)
|Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.|
|The causes of events are ever more interesting than the events themselves.
– Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC-43 BC)
