„Fate and freedom alike play a part in history; and there are times, as in wars and revolutions, when fate is the stronger of the two.“

—  Nikolai Berdyaev Russian philosopher 1874 - 1948
Context: Fate and freedom alike play a part in history; and there are times, as in wars and revolutions, when fate is the stronger of the two. Freedom — the freedom of man and of nations — could never have been the origin of two world wars. These latter were brought about by fate, which exercises its power owing to the weakness and decline of freedom and of the creative spirit of man. Almost all contemporary political ideologies, with their characteristic tendency to state-idolatry, are likewise largely a product of two world wars, begotten as they are of the inexorability's of fate. p. 32
