Anne O'Hare McCormick
“The Hitler movement is a stampede. It is something beyond reason, like a pulse beating, like a rush of blood to the head, like the sap rising from the twisted roots of a family tree. ... in many ways it is the most remarkable upheaval of our time, perhaps the most momentous.”
“Today the real test of power is not capacity to make war but capacity to prevent it.”
“... the percentage of mistakes in quick decisions is no greater than in long-drawn-out vacillations, and the effect of decisiveness itself 'makes things go' and creates confidence.”
“The struggle to maintain peace is immeasurably more difficult than any military operation.”
“[During a pre-war interview with Hitler when he screamed at her, 'The Jews! The Jews! What are you doing about the Jews in America?':] Why nothing. We think we're just as good as they are.”
Anne O'Hare McCormick, English-born U.S. journalist, foreign correspondent
(1880 - 1954)
