Quotations

SHARE
Joseph Campbell:

"If you want to know what a given society believes in, look at what its largest buildings are devoted to."

Chris Beck
'Claire Lehmann’s Forum for the Intellectual Dark Web':

“Lehmann contributed to a number of publications before launching Quillette, but claims the Australian media blacklisted her as soon as she started criticizing feminism. She rejects the ‘blank slate’ view that feminists, and progressives in general, have made a centerpiece of their dogma. It’s the belief that humans are strictly the product of culture and socialization, and the rejection of the idea that humans are born with certain innate characteristics.”



Cyprian Norwid:

"Even when they explore the darkest depths of the soul or the most unsettling aspects of evil, the artist gives voice in a way to the universal desire for redemption."

Seen somewhere on Facebook out of the corner of my eye:

"Dan Hannan is a self-confessed liberal. I saw it come out of his own mouth. He was having a massive love-in with our former PM John Howard at a dinner a couple of years back. I asked him the direct question - can the Anglosphere exist without Anglos in it? In perfect LIBERAL form, he replied that (paraphrasing) the Anglosphere was a concept; a set of values. He declared that the centre of the Anglosphere was India. He took great exception to my question - he was not happy."


Ann Coulter, 'The Irish Aren’t Red-Headed Mexicans':

"As late as 1990 — a quarter-century into Teddy Kennedy’s plan to remake our nation into a Third World hellhole — half of the population traced its roots to the Americans of 1790. We’re a real country, made up of the people who created it, much like other countries."
