"Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. What the fella says,
in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder,
and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the
Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years
of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."
--Harry Lime in The Third Man (1949)
