[For Twenty-five Years I've Been Speaking And Writing In Defense Of Your Right To Happiness In This World, Condemning Your Inability To Take What Is Your Due, To Secure What You Won In Bloody Battles On The Barricades Of Paris And Vienna, In The American Civil War, In The Russian Revolution. Your Paris Ended With Petain And Laval, Your Vienna With Hitler, Your Russia With Stalin, And Your America May Well End In The Rule Of The Ku Klux Klan! You've Been More Successful In Winning Your Freedom Than In Securing It For Yourself And Others. This I Knew Long Ago. What I Did Not Understand Was Why Time And Again, After Fighting Your Way Out Of A Swamp, You Sank Into A Worse One. Then Groping And Cautiously Looking About Me, I Gradually Found Out What Has Enslaved You: YOUR SLAVE DRIVER IS YOU YOURSELF. No One Is To Blame For Your Slavery But You Yourself. No One Else, I Say!]

Quotes About Evelyn Waugh

"I was near-delirious. Gazing up at the pillared skyline, I knew that I was surveying a tremendous work of man. Buying myself a drink in the smaller warrens below, in all their ethnic variety (and willingness to keep odd and late hours, and provide plentiful ice cubes, and free matchbooks in contrast to English parsimony in these matters), I felt the same thing in a different way. The balance between the macro and the micro, the heroic scale and the human scale, has never since ceased to fascinate and charm me. Evelyn Waugh was in error when he said that in New York there was a neurosis in the air which the inhabitants mistook for energy. There was, rather, a tensile excitement in that air which made one think—made me think for many years—that time spent asleep in New York was somehow time wasted. Whether this thought has lengthened or shortened my life I shall never know, but it has certainly colored it." - Author: Christopher Hitchens
