Jean SEZNEC, from (essay) Dante & Delacroix (Ch. 10; pp. 238-248 of The World of Dante (Cecil GRAYSON, 1980, Oxford Univ. Press))
"Delacroix's supreme merit was to perceive and to develop the indications of the text and to visualize the scene just as Dante had; an achievement far beyond the reach of a mere illustrator.
Eugène Delacroix (April 1798 – August 1863):
'I have been accused of being a literary painter; my critics have claimed that if I borrow my subjects (from) books, this is because I lack imagination; it is a sign of sterility.
'But books to me are not simply models to copy from; I do not imitate them--for what I look for is an echo, a confirmation of my own feelings and of my own dreams. My choice of books is not dictated by the necessity of finding subjects but by a secret sympathy. What I take from them is only what I already had in me--I mean the figures and themes that correspond to my personal moods. If I use (Lord) Byron and Shakespeare and Dante, it is because I sense, between them and me, an affinity. I am attuned to their works and they never fail to move me."
"Read and re-read Dante; you will find in him what you have always felt in yourself."
"Remember Delacroix's self-exhortation:
'Read and re-read Dante; you will find in him what you have always felt in yourself.' "
(translation from the French by Jean Seznec)
"Il libri di una biblioteca non raccontano solo ciò
di cui parlano ma anche la storia di chi li ha acquistati,
ricevuti in regalo, ereditati e disposti nei ripiani
secondo una logica spesso chiara solo a lui." -- Moreno Montanari ;
"Gli Scaffali stracolmi che rivelano come siamo,"
La Repubblica, domenica, 24.luglio 2016
"We should not let our own ignorance victimize the tremendous intelligence of Shakespeare." (p. 208)
"Shakespeare possesses the sharpest possible eye for the human tendency to arbitrary scapegoating and the manner in which the dissolving of significance in mimetic violence destroys everything in its wake." (p. 209)
—René Girard, A Theatre of Envy: William Shakespeare, (Gracewing-Inigo, U.K. publications, (2000) ; Oxford University Press (1991))
What? — Are my deedes forgot?
Time hath (my Lord) a wallet at his backe,
Wherein he puts almes for obliuion:
A great siz'd monster of ingratitudes:
Those scraps are good deedes past,
Which are deuour'd as fast as they are made,
Forgot as soone as done:
(Troilus and Cressida, (III, iii, lines.1997-2003)
"Veritas non quaerit angulos, vmbra gaudet."
“τύχη τά ϑνητών πράγματ ούχ εύϐουλία” —Χαιρήμων (Stob. 1.6.7= fr 2 TrGF 71)
“Censorship is a form of repression.”
–Richard Dutton, Mastering the Revels: The Regulation and Censorship of English Renaissance Drama, (preface, p. ix)
“...how it actually operated, what the rationale behind it was, and how it related to the wider structures of society...only when we take all these matters into account can we make a realistic assessment of the relevance of the subject to our own condition, which is the proper, indeed unavoidable, duty of all scholarship.”
"The greatest scientific discovery was the discovery of ignorance. Once humans realised how little they knew about the world, they suddenly had a very good reason to seek new knowledge." -- Yuval Noah Harari,(2016) Homo Deus
“Early in life I had to choose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility. I chose honest arrogance and have seen no occasion to change.” — Frank Lloyd Wright
"And as always with important history, one learns much from it about one's own time and circumstances." -- A.C. Grayling, (2016) The Age of Genius: The Seventeenth-century and the Birth of the Modern Mind
"As you are aware, the Council of Trent forbids the interpretation of the Scriptures in a way contrary to the common opinion of the holy Fathers. Now, if your Reverence will read not merely the Fathers, but modern commentators on Genesis, the Psalms, Ecclesiastes, and Joshua, you will discover that all agree in interpreting them literally as teaching that the Sun is in the heavens and revolves round the Earth with immense speed, and that the Earth is very distant from the heavens, at the centre of the universe, and motionless. Consider, then, in your prudence, whether the Church can tolerate that the scriptures should be interpreted in a manner contrary to that of the holy Fathers and of all modern commentators, both Latin and Greek." --Cardinal Bellarmino, in a letter to Paolo Antonio Foscarini, (April 12, 1615)
"While trying to cover this unfamiliar ground I discovered (as all neophytes do) that what seemed relatively simple on first glance became increasingly complex on examination and that new areas of ignorance opened up much faster than old ones could be closed." —— Elizabeth Eisenstein, from the Preface to The Printing Press As an Agent of Change (14th printing, Cambridge University Press, 2009.)
"I have had nothing positive to say about popular culture, and nothing positive to say about the cultural establishment. My conclusions, however, are not so grim as (Oswald) Spengler's. We have entered, as I see it, a spiritual limbo. Our educational institutions are no longer bearers of high culture and public life has been deliberately moronised. But here and there, sheltered from the noise and glare of the media, the old spiritual forces are at work. Popular culture contains pockets of gentleness and melody. Architects, writers and composers produce works which are neither kitsch nor 'kitsch.' Prayer and penitence have been interrupted, but not forgotten. To those who wish for it, the ethical life may still be retrieved. Ours is a catacomb culture, a flame kept alive by undaunted monks. And what the monks of Europe achieved in a former dark age, they might achieve again." -- Roger Scruton, An Intelligent Person's Guide to Modern Culture (1998/2000)
..."the county certified the election results."
..." it is not the origin of ideas which should interest epistemologists, but the truth of theories; and that the problem of the truth or falsity of a theory can, obviously, only arise after the theory has been put before us--that is to say, after it has originated with somebody, in some way or other--and the history of its origin has hardly any bearing upon the question of its truth."
-- Karl R. Popper, Realism and the Aim of Science (1983, Hutchinson & Co. Publishers, London)
