122. Lord Acton, Laurens van der Post, Quotes

"The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern. Every class is unfit to govern." Lord Acton.

The writer and philosopher Laurens van der Post, in his memoir of his friendship with Carl Jung, said, "We live not only our own lives but, whether we know it or not, also the life of our time. We are actors in a moment of history, taking part in it, moving it this way or that as we move forward or back. The moment we are living now is a strange one, a disquieting one, a time that seems full of endings."
