Many a wise word spoke

We all love a good quote. A few words by minds greater than our own can inspire us and sum up in a second or two what we've been struggling with for weeks. So starting today Berrocscir's Banner will be putting some cracking quotes up here. Base your entire existence on them!

Satisfactory world order...cannot be bought about by the reduction of cultural diversity and the creation of a world-wide gray sameness - Clyde Kluckhohn

How this corrupt system would begin to tremble if the enormous revolutionary currents of the left and the right would unite - Michael Kuhnen

Those who remain silent about capitalism should not complain about immigration
- Alan de Benoist

A man does not show his greatness by being at one extremity, but rather by touching both at once - Blaise Pascal

Better a cruel truth than a comfortable delusion - Edward Abbey

Brother, be of good comfort and joyful, for you shall have, in the fortnight that is to come, praise from the commons even more than you have yet had, and we shall be good companions. - Wat Tyler to Richard II, Smithsfield, June 1381

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark. The real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light - Plato
