“Het moet trouwens toch maar eens afgelopen zijn met de 'moderniteit' in dit jaar - dat is zo'n rekbaar begrip, door tijdgenoten en latere generaties telkens anders geïnterpreteerd en door iedere generatie steeds weer in een ander tijdsgewricht geplaatst, dat het eigenlijk helemaal niet geschikt is om de ontzaglijke niet-gelijktijdige gelijktijdigheid die het jaar 1913 vooral kenmerkt naar behoren te schetsen.”
Florian Illies, 1913: Der Sommer des Jahrhunderts

“Vroeg naar bed gaan - dat vonden de immer onuitgeslapen pioniers van de moderne kunst het moedigst denkbare gevecht tegen depressie, drank, zinloze verstrooiing en de voortstormdende tijd.”
Florian Illies, 1913: Der Sommer des Jahrhunderts

“»Noch immer unentschieden. Franz«. Vier Worte, eine Autobiographie.”
Florian Illies, 1913: Der Sommer des Jahrhunderts
