Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end.

(God doesn't make a cent on the deal.) The world goes on because a few men in every generation believe in it utterly, accept it unquestioningly; they underwrite it with their lives.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/17917/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/17917/ <![CDATA[I have never been able to look upon America as young and vital but rather as prematurely old, as a fruit which rotted before it had a chance to ripen.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/2241/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/2241/ <![CDATA[One can be absolutely truthful and sincere even though admittedly the most outrageous liar.
