leave a comment »

“He was free of small-talk. Whenever an escape-route appeared in the wall of trivia, his conversation would veer away into sublimities, and the components of British politics – the crown, the common law, the lords and commons – appeared in his discourse not as humdrum collections of modern people but as radiant and transfiguring ideas which shone above the course of history and cast their great light along the centuries.” -Roger Scruton

“They hoped to restore what they had lost, wheras she knew that our loss and theirs was permanent. We are dying creatures in a dying world. Our place is among the dead, and happiness comes when we acknowledge this, and strive to re-create in our imagination, and to some small extent in reality, the moral order that has been established over more than a lifetime for the sake of more than a life.” -Roger Scruton
