“… I absolutely do not become disheartened. Dearest, history itself always knows best what to do about things, even when the situation looks desperate. I speak this word not as some comfortable fatalism! Quite the opposite! The human must be spurred on to the utmost, and it’s necessary to fight consciously with all one’s might.’
Rosa Luxemburg to her friend Marta Rosenbaum.
