Famous quotes containing the words warshow and/or robert:

    Modern equalitarian societies ... whether democratic or authoritarian in their political forms, always base themselves on the claim that they are making life happier.... Happiness thus becomes the chief political issue—in a sense, the only political issue—and for that reason it can never be treated as an issue at all.
    —Robert Warshow (1917–1955)

    But I, being man, can kiss
    And bed-spread-eagle too;
    All flesh shall come to this,
    Being less than angel is,
    Yet higher far in bliss
    As it entwines with you.
    —William Robert Rodgers (1909–1969)
