The problem with the unruffled boosters of the Enlightenment as well as its unreconcilable enemies is that they can't get their minds around the idea that a value may need its opposite not to become dangerous. For them, all good things cohere together, in one single consistent package. The things which we inescapably find good often conflict, sometimes tragically. The attempt to hide this from ourselves is not only an intellectual failing, it is also a source of catastrophically destructive action, as we try to dragoon reality into our narrow conceptual net.Charles Taylor Dragoon Sayings By Charles Taylor: The problem with the unruffled boosters of the Enlightenment as well as its unreconcilable enemies
The General knew he would probably die, for infantry took pleasure in killing cavalry and he would be the leading horseman in the attack on the bridge, but the General was a soldier and he had long learned that a soldier's real enemy is the fear of death. Beat that fear and victory was certain, and victory brought glory and fame and medals and money and, best of all, sweetest of all, most glorious and wondrous of all, the modest teasing grin of a short black-haired Emperor who would pat the Dragoon General as though he was a faithful dog, and the thought of that Imperial favour made the General quicken his horse and raise his battered sword.Bernard Cornwell Dragoon Sayings By Bernard Cornwell: The General knew he would probably die, for infantry took pleasure in killing cavalry and
Enthusiasm for the universe, in knowing as well as in creating, also answers the question of doubt and meaninglessness. Doubt is the necessary tool of knowledge.

They say love dies between two people. That's wrong. It doesn't die. It just leaves you, goes away, if you aren't good enough, worthy enough. It doesn't die; you're the the one that dies. It's like the ocean: if you're no good, if you begin to make a bad smell in it, it just spews you up somewhere to die. You die anyway, but I had rather drown in the ocean than be urped up onto a strip of dead beach and be dried away by the sun into a little foul smear with no name to it, just this was for an epitaphWilliam Faulkner Dragoon Sayings By William Faulkner: They say love dies between two people. That's wrong. It doesn't die. It just leaves

I was distressed by the poor quality of the debate surrounding energy. I was also noticing so much green wash from politicians and big business.

The authors we classified as villains, detractors, and bad role models for our children are part of the educational curriculum.

The talented that wrote about these adventurous escapades and secret interludes are part of our literary tradition.Julia Ann Charpentier Dragoon Sayings By Julia Ann Charpentier: The authors we classified as villains, detractors, and bad role models for our children are
You've got to understand one of the tricks of the modern mind, a tendency that most people obey without noticing it. In the village or suburb outside there's an inn with the sign of St. George and the Dragon. Now suppose I went about telling everybody that this was only a corruption of King George and the Dragoon. Scores of people would believe it, without any inquiry, from a vague feeling that it's probable because it's prosaic. It turns something romantic and legendary into something recent and ordinary. And that somehow makes it sound rational, though it is unsupported by reason. Of course some people would have the sense to remember having seen St. George in old Italian pictures and French romances, but a good many wouldn't think about it at all. They would just swallow the skepticism because it was skepticism. Modern intelligence won't accept anything on authority. But it will accept anything without authority. That's exactly what has happened here.G.K. Chesterton Dragoon Sayings By G.K. Chesterton: You've got to understand one of the tricks of the modern mind, a tendency that

Lucy, has he not rather the air of an incipient John Bull? He used to be slender as an eel, and now I fancy in him a sort of heavy dragoon bent - a beef-eater tendency. Graham, take notice!

To try to teach ignoring technology is to ignore the progress that we have made over the last century.

In 1928, the top 10 percent of earners captured 46 percent of national income.
