Danny and I were studying the unification of Germany today during History. Bismarck was an interesting person. He built up the Prussian army, then tricked Austria into the Seven Week War. After that, he connived (partly by falsifying a telegram) to go to war with France. He beat them in less than seven weeks. I like some of his quotes:
- "Better pointed bullets than pointed words."
- "People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war, or before an election."
and my personal favorite -
- "Laws are like sausages. It's better not to see them being made."
