Leo Strauss
“Only a great fool would call the new political science diabolic: it has no attributes peculiar to fallen angels. It is not even Machiavellian, for Machiavelli's teaching was graceful, subtle, and colorful. Nor is it Neronian. Nevertheless one may say of it that it fiddles while Rome burns. It is excused by two facts: it does not know that it fiddles, and it does not know that Rome burns.”
Leo Strauss, Liberalism Ancient and Modern

T.S. Eliot
“When the Stranger says: “What is the meaning of this city ?
Do you huddle close together because you love each other?”
What will you answer? “We all dwell together
To make money from each other”? or “This is a community”?
Oh my soul, be prepared for the coming of the Stranger.
Be prepared for him who knows how to ask questions.”
T.S. Eliot, The Rock

“Music begins where the possibilities of language end”
Jean Sibelius

James Baldwin
“She fitted in my arms, she always had, and the shock of holding her caused me to feel that my arms had been empty since she had been away.”
James Baldwin, Giovanni's Room

John      Webster
“What's a whore? She's like the guilty counterfeited coin Which whosoe're first stamps it brings in trouble all that receive it.”
John Webster, The White Devil
