  • “Among the Greeks the answer of the Delphic Apollo is well known: ‘Man, know yourself.’ So also Solomon, or rather Christ, says in the Canticle, ‘If you do not know yourself, go forth’.”

    ~
    William of Saint-Thierry, De anima, Prologue, 1.105 ~

  • 'Writing should facilitate sapientia rather than mere scientia... '
    "Meanwhile, I had fully immersed my soul in the study of verse-making. Consequently I left aside all the seriousness of sacred Scripture for this vain and ludicrous activity. Sustained by my folly I had reached a point where I was competing with Ovid and the pastoral poets and striving to achieve an amorous charm in my way of arranging images and in well-crafted letters. Forgetting the proper rigor of the monastic calling and castingaway its modesty, my mind became so enraptured by the seductions of this contagious influence… that I began to use a few slightly obscene words and to compose little poems entirely bereft of any sense of weight and measure, indeed shorn of all decency."

    Monodiae, 1.17
    ~ Guibert of Nogent (c.1055–1124) ~

The Abbey Library of St Gallen, Switzerland; the monastery was founded in 719.

In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments, the governments alone, independent of the interests of the people, to whom war is always pernicious even when successful.

Be careful, when a democracy is sick, fascism comes to its bedside, but it is not to inquire about its health.

Faites attention, quand une démocratie est malade, le fascisme vient à son chevet mais ce n'est pas pour prendre de ses nouvelles.

~ Albert Camus.

“Republics never survive, for their people do not like freedom but prefer to be led and guided and flattered and seduced into slavery by a benevolent, or not so, benevolent despot. They want to worship Caesar. So, American republicanism will inevitably die and become a democracy, and then decline, as Aristotle said into a despotism.”

“It is a stern fact of history that no nation that rushed to the abyss ever turned back. Not ever, in the long history of the world. We are now on the edge of the abyss. Can we, for the first time in history, turn back? It is up to you."

“Mankind adores its betrayers, and murders its saviors.”

In great empires the people who live in the capital, and in the provinces remote from the scene of action, feel, many of them, scarce any inconveniency from the war; but enjoy, at their ease, the amusement of reading in the newspapers the exploits of their own fleets and armies. To them this amusement compensates the small difference between the taxes which they pay on account of the war, and those which they had been accustomed to pay in time of peace. They are commonly dissatisfied with the return of peace, which puts an end to their amusement, and to a thousand visionary hopes of conquest and national glory from a longer continuance of the war. ~ Adam Smith

"I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office."
