„If you will, it is no legend…“

—  Theodor Herzl Austro-Hungarian journalist and writer 1860 - 1904

Prefix to Altneuland, (1902)
Originally in German: Wenn ihr wollt, ist es kein Märchen... which was intended to have the double meaning of a strong will shall eventually be realized, and as part of a paragraph ending as a postfix to the book, that this book perhaps will be seen as a true story, but even if not...
The Israeli rightist movement "Im Tirzu" (Literally: 'If you will') is named after this quote.
