Six quotations

SHARE
Write as the wind blows and command all words like an army!

Belloc

We think that we are born today tabula rasa without a history, but man has always lived in the myth. To think that man is born without a history within himself — that is a disease. It is absolutely abnormal, because man is not bom every day. He is born into a specific historical setting with specific historical qualities, and therefore, he is only complete when he has a relation to these things. If you are growing up with no connection

from the past, it is like being born without eyes and ears and trying to perceive the external world with accuracy. Natural science may say, “You need no connection with the past; you can wipe it out”, but that is a mutilation of the human being.

Carl Gustav Jung

'A man, sir, should keep his friendship in constant repair.'

Dr. Johnson

The only lesson history teaches is that history teaches no lessons.

A.J.P. Taylor

We learn from the mistakes of the past to make new mistakes in the future.


A.J.P. Taylor



Catholic men that live upon wine

Are deep in the water, and frank, and fine;

Wherever I travel I find it so,

Benedicamus Domino.
