“Dawes? Dawes, do come back to earth and honour us with your attention for a moment.”
Timberlake Wertenbaker, Our Country's Good

Timberlake Wertenbaker
“The Greeks believed that it was a citizen's duty to watch a play. It was a kind of work in that it required attention, judgement, patience, all the social virtues."

"And the Greek were conquered by the more practical Romans, Arthur."

"Indeed, the Romans built their bridges, but they also spent many centuries wishing they were Greeks. And they, after all, were conquered by the barbarians, or by their own corrupt and small spirits.”
Timberlake Wertenbaker
