In reference to the area of the Jewish state: From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.
As quoted in Complete Diaries by Theodor Herzl, Volume II, page 711.
Realists are, as a rule, only men in the rut of routine who are incapable of transcending a narrow circle of antiquated notions.Theodor Herzl
Some people do not understand us correctly and believe that the goal of our effort is to return to our land. Our ideal is going forwards then that - our ideal is the vision of the Great eternal truth; it is an ideal that always goes forward; it is an ideal that never ends, it is always growing, so that every step forward that we take, our horizon keep going ahead of us, and in perspective we see before us the purpose that is greater and more noble, which we’ll try to put our selves towards.Theodor Herzl
Were I to sum up the Basel Congress in a word which I shall guard against pronouncing publicly it would be this: At Basel, I founded the Jewish State. If I said this out loud today, I would be answered by universal laughter. Perhaps in five years, certainly in fifty, everyone will know it.Theodor Herzl
Dream and deed are not as different as many think. All the deeds of men are dreams at first, and become dreams in the end.Theodor Herzl
Do you know out of what the German Empire arose? Out of dreams, songs, fantasies and black-red-gold ribbons? Bismarck merely shook the tree that fantasies had planted.Theodor Herzl
