Where is the Life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?T.S. Eliot

I must tell you that I should really like to think there's something wrong with me- Because, if there isn't, then there's something wrong with the world itself-and that's much more frightening! That would be terrible. So I'd rather believe there is something wrong with me, that could be put right.T.S. Eliot

Richard M. Weaver
“Hysterical optimism will prevail until the world again admits the existence of tragedy, and it cannot admit the existence of tragedy until it again distinguishes between good and evil. . . Hysterical optimism as a sin against knowledge.”
Richard M. Weaver, Ideas Have Consequences

Richard M. Weaver
“[I]f we feel that creation does not express purpose, it is impossible to find an authorization for purpose in our own lives.”
Richard M. Weaver, Ideas Have Consequences

Richard M. Weaver
“Piety is a discipline of the will through respect. It admits the right to exist of things larger than the ego, of things different from the ego.”
Richard M. Weaver, Ideas Have Consequences

Romano Guardini
“Philosophy goes into the problem deeply, without changing being at all. Religion tells me that I have been created; that I am continuously receiving myself from divine hands, that I am free yet living from God’s strength. Try to feel your way into this truth, and your whole attitude towards life will change. You will see yourself in an entirely new perspective. What once seemed self-understood becomes questionable. Where once you were indifferent, you become reverent; where self-confident, you learn to know “fear and trembling.” But where formerly you felt abandoned, you will now feel secure, living as a child of the Creator-Father, and the knowledge that this is precisely what you are will alter the very tap-root of your being. . . .”
Romano Guardini, The Lord

Richard M. Weaver
“The issue ultimately involved is whether there is a source of truth higher than, and independent of, man; and the answer to the question is decisive for one’s view of the nature and destiny of man.”
Richard M. Weaver, Ideas Have Consequences
