[Alle (außer Franz Joseph und Elisabeth):]
Alle Fragen sind gestellt
Und alle Phrasen eingeübt.
Wir sind die Letzten einer Welt,
Aus der es keinen Ausweg gibt.

[Everybody but Franz Joseph and Elisabeth]
All the questions have been asked

We are the last ones of a world
Which doesn't have a way out


Denn alle Sünden sind gewagt,
Die Tugenden sind einstudiert,
Und alle Flüche sind gesagt
Und alle Segen revidiert.

Because all the sins have been dared

Mommsen carries a great integrative work forward with psychological insight.

“But it was no less clear, that Gracchus himself and these merchants and proletarians were only kept together by mutual advantage, and that the men of material interests were ready to accept their posts, and the populace strictly so called its bread, quite as well from any other as from Gaius Gracchus.

The weakness of the latter lay in the fact, that in the constitution of Gracchus there was no relation of allegiance subsisting at all between the chief and the army; and, while the new constitution possessed all other elements of vitality, it lacked one—the moral tie between ruler and ruled, without which every state rests on a pedestal of clay.” 0 likes
