Quote Right
Quote Left I feel most at home in the United States, not because it is intrinsically a more interesting country, but because no one really belongs there any more than I do. We are all there together in its wholly excellent vacuum. Quote Right
Quote Left The intelligence suffers today automatically in consequence of the attack on all authority, advantage, or privilege. These things are not done away with, it is needless to say, but numerous scapegoats are made of the less politically powerful, to satisfy the egalitarian rage awakened. Quote Right
Quote Left No American worth his salt should go around looking for a root. I advance this in all modesty, as a not unreasonable opinion. Quote Right
