Stefan Zweig quotes

It would be foolhardy to count on the conscience of the world.

No guilt is forgotten so long as the conscience still knows of it.

Beware of pity.

Life is futile unless it be directed towards a definite goal.

The soul is made of stuff so mysteriously elastic that a single event can make it big enough to contain the infinite.

Whatever a woman's reason may say, her feelings tell her the truth.

One can run away from anything but oneself.
