“Abject flattery and indiscriminate assentation degrade, as much as indiscriminate contradiction and noisy debate disgust. But a modest assertion of ones own opinion, and a complaisant acquiescence in other peoples, preserve dignity.”
—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (16941773)
“But Irish had an old soul, you might say. He was a man with a great future behind him, already.”
—Angela Carter (19401992)
“All that we did, all that we said or sang
Must come from contact with the soil, from that
Contact everything Antaeus-like grew strong.
We three alone in modern times had brought
Everything down to that sole test again,
Dream of the noble and the beggarman.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
