Text of the day: “We literally worship culture. When we make money, that’s what money is for, to put us at the beating heart of Viennese culture. This is the Promised Land, and not because it’s some place on a map where my ancestors came from. We’re Austrians now. Austrians of Jewish descent! We’re only one in ten but without us Austria would be the Patagonia of banking, science, the law, the arts, literature, journalism…” (Hermann in Tom Stoppard’s Leopoldstadt)
