“spectacle of Dorothy Thompson at Madison Square Garden — tall, fair, blue-eyed, and laughing in her evening gown at twenty-two thousand “little men” — was not a thing to be forgotten.”
Peter Kurth, American Cassandra: The Life of Dorothy Thompson

“I really was put out of Germany for the crime of blasphemy... My offense was to think that Hitler is just an ordinary man,”
Peter Kurth, American Cassandra: The Life of Dorothy Thompson

“If the world is going to be regarded as a continual hunting, fishing and fighting expedition,” said Dorothy, “— if it is to be regarded in terms of the primitive male activities — then it will go on as it has gone on, with booms, depressions, and wars... It’s going to be Caesars and World Wars throughout a long future,”
Peter Kurth, American Cassandra: The Life of Dorothy Thompson
