An interesting quote

This is our calling, that we shall become the templars of this Grail, gird the sword round our loins for its sake and stake our lives joyfully in the last, holy war which will be followed by the thousand-year reign of freedom.

-Friedrich Engels, "Schelling and Revelation," 1841

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."
