Rancor (Schlesinger)

Rancor is one of the unavowed but potent emotions of politics; and one must never forget that the envy of the have-nots can be quite as consuming when the haves have character or intelligence as it is when they have merely material possessions.

Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.

They lost all (Hamilton)

Is it rational that now when the young people may have to face problems harder than we face, is it reasonable that with the atomic age before them, at this time we are giving up the study of how the Greeks and Romans prevailed magnificently in a barbaric world; the study, too, of how that triumph ended, how a slackness and softness finally came over them to their ruin? In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security, a comfortable life, and they lost all—security and comfort and freedom.

Edith Hamilton

Double (Van Doren)

The mind of man has always lived a double life, or had a double function:  to go forth and return.  Or perhaps one should say, to discover and remember.

Mark Van Doren
