Famous quotes containing the words macmillan and/or ernest:
“The wind of change is blowing through the continent. Whether we like it or not, this growth of national consciousness is a political fact.”
—Harold MacMillan (18941986)
“Put shortly, these are the two views, then. One, that man is intrinsically good, spoilt by circumstance; and the other that he is intrinsically limited, but disciplined by order and tradition to something fairly decent. To the one party mans nature is like a well, to the other like a bucket. The view which regards him like a well, a reservoir full of possibilities, I call the romantic; the one which regards him as a very finite and fixed creature, I call the classical.”
—Thomas Ernest Hulme (18831917)
