"'Hell', wrote one chronicler, 'felt herself defiled by his admission.'" Peter Ackroyd, writing about the death of King John.
If you're not listening to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History podcast, you're missing out. He's a liberal, but fair. And he's excellent at talking about history.
"Fear and envy, needless to say, are twin brothers, yet we really should speak of triplets, because hate keeps them good company." Erik Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn, Leftism. A difficult book, but bleeds profundity.
"Atheism is born from the womb of a bad conscience. Disbelief comes from sin, not from reason." Fulton Sheen
From my 2015 notebooks: "The way I see it, in light of Obergefell and Caitlyn Jenner, at age 49 I'm now more "out of it" than my grandpa was when he died at age 87 in the 1980s. He was so far out of touch with the times, he could say pretty much anything he wanted and no one took offense. That's a good development for me." Aye, how much changes in just two years. Instead of a resigned smile, I and others like me are actually on the offensive again.
