Quotes - Mussolini

Quotes - Mussolini

I've been researching history all day today, mostly in broad swaths of information, but I stumbled upon this fascinating quote of Mussolini's, when he was interviewed early in 1945, shortly before he was executed.

Yes, madam, I am finished. My star has fallen. I have no fight left in me. I work and I try, yet know that all is but a farce ... I await the end of the tragedy and – strangely detached from everything – I do not feel any more an actor. I feel I am the last of spectators.
-Benito Mussolini to Madeleine Mollier
