Quote Worth Quoting

"For intellectuals, far from being highly individualistic and non-conformist people, follow certain regular patterns of behaviour. Taken as a group, they are often ultra-conformist within the circles formed by those approval they seek and value."
~ Paul Johnson on Intellectuals

I'm glad to see that I am not the only one who believes that Paul Johnson is a worthy read. Here's to a very prosperous New Year.

Hi Charlie, thank you. Yes, I love Johnson. A "true" intellectual and one who rejects the faddish pc trends in historiography.
