Willy Brandt, high-minded realist (The TLS)

“A free city in the heart of a hostile country cannot afford to be neutralist.”

“If there is any need for evidence that Herr Brandt is still a Social Democrat at heart, it can be found in this: he is Governing Mayor of Berlin. Only an obstinate, old-fashioned, bloody-minded idealist would take on a job like that.”
