A Quote by André Malraux on america, conquest, effort, generations, history, energy, nations, power, and world

In the course of history, all empires have been created with premeditation, by an effort often sustained over several generations. Every power has been Roman to a degree. The United States is the first nation to become the most powerful in the world without having sought to be so. Its exceptional energy and organization have never been oriented toward conquest.

Andre Malraux (1901 - 1976)
