Paul D. Boyer
The post-Cold War order in Europe is finished, with Vladimir Putin its executioner. Russia's invasion of Georgia only marked its passing. Russia has emerged as a born-again 19th-century power determined to challenge the intellectual, moral and institutional foundations of the order.
In life every effort is marked down at the end as a win or a loss.
Edward Bennett Williams
