  1. Angela Merkel:

    Overall, after an intensive discussion on the most challenging issue for the European Union, namely migration, it is a good signal that we agreed a common text, we still have a lot of work to do to bridge the different views.

  3. Albert Camus:

    What then is capital punishment but the most premeditated of murders, to which no criminal's deed, however calculated it may be, can be compared For there to be an equivalence, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal, who had warned his victim of the date at which he would inflict a horrible death on him, and who from that moment onward had confined him at his mercy for months. Such a monster is not encountered in private life.

  4. Luis Elizondo:
