Who said that?

In Switzerland they had brotherly love, five hundred years of democracy and peace, and what did they produce? The cuckoo clock!


Orson Welles as Harry Lime in The Third Man? Yes but who said it originally? I was astounded to find that it was a long-time heroine of mine, Simone Weil!

And she also said,

The mysteries of faith are degraded if they are made into an object of affirmation and negation, when in reality they should be an object of contemplation

Which I like.
