Hungary Quote # 263

Crown & Parliament

Crown & Parliament

“Logic is not what our history teaches us.”

GYULA ILLYES (Hungarian poet and novelist)

This summer I visited the Hungarian capital, Budapest. The river Danube crosses the heart of the city. Walking across on Margaret bridge I saw the Hungarian Saint Crown’s stone copy and in the background on the right hand lower corner the Hungarian Parliament. To me it is a symbolic representation of one thousand years history of Hungarian statehood.
