    How a minority,
    Reaching majority,
    Seizing authority,
    Hates a minority!
    —Leonard H. Robbins (1877–1947)

    The truth is that Mozart, Pascal, Boolean algebra, Shakespeare, parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton, the emancipation of women, Kant, Marx, and Balanchine ballets don’t redeem what this particular civilization has wrought upon the world. The white race is the cancer of human history.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    It is in our faults and failings, not in our virtues, that we touch each other, and find sympathy.... It is in our follies that we are one.
    Jerome K. Jerome (1859–1927)
