Famous quotes containing the word historical:

    Whether considered as a doctrine, or as an historical fact, or as a movemement, socialism, if it really remains socialism, cannot be brought into harmony with the dogmas of the Catholic church.... Religious socialism, Christian socialism, are expressions implying a contradiction in terms.
    Pius XI [Achille Ratti] (1857–1939)

    Yet the companions of the Muses

    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)
