The Third Man: Creativity & The Cuckoo Clock

In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance.

In Switzerland, they had brotherly love; they had five hundred years of democracy and peace and what did they produce?

The cuckoo clock.

- Orson Welles in the movie, The Third Man
