Zitate Martha Gellhorn

„I tell you loneliness is the thing to master.“

—  Martha Gellhorn
Context: I tell you loneliness is the thing to master. Courage and fear, love, death are only parts of it and can easily be ruled afterwards. If I make myself master my own loneliness there will be peace or safety: and perhaps these are the same. Notebook entry, quoted in "Gellhorn : A Twentieth Century Life" (2003) by Caroline Moorehead, p. 88.

„War happens to people, one by one. That is really all I have to say and it seems to me I have been saying it forever.“

—  Martha Gellhorn
Context: War happens to people, one by one. That is really all I have to say and it seems to me I have been saying it forever. Unless they are immediate victims, the majority of mankind behaves as if war was an act of God which could not be prevented; or they behave as if war elsewhere was none of their business. It would be a bitter cosmic joke if we destroy ourselves due to atrophy of the imagination. Letter as quoted in "Gellhorn: A Twentieth Century Life" (2003) written by Caroline Moorehead.
