Famous quotes containing the words revealed, continent and/or lost:

    ... we engage in politics because we don’t know anything. This is clearly revealed in the way we go about it. Our parties exist from a fear of theory. The voter fears that one idea can always be contradicted by another. Therefore the parties reciprocally defend themselves against the few old ideas they have inherited. They don’t live from what they promise, but from frustrating the promises of others. This is their silent community of interests.
    Robert Musil (1880–1942)

    Our moat around us is no more a moat,
    Our continent no more a moated castle.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it is a lost tradition.
    Jacques Barzun (b. 1907)
