Text Quotes
I’ve been having an affair, but I still believe in family values  (Paul Johnson Quotes) When people talk about political correctness, the only element of any value is good manners  (Paul Johnson Quotes) Conservation of energy. Never stand up when you can sit down, and never sit down when you can lie down.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) The freedom enjoyed in Western society under the rule of law and constitutional government explains both the quality of its civilization and its wealth.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) At some time in their careers, most good historians itch to write a history of the world, endeavor to discover what makes humanity the most destructive and creative of species.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) The planet Earth, though not threatened with destruction by man-made global warming, is by no means indestructible. There are many unpredictable events within our solar system, and still more outside it, that could make Earth uninhabitable by humans.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) The idea that human beings have changed and are changing the basic climate system of the Earth through their industrial activities and burning of fossil fuels - the essence of the Greens’ theory of global warming - has about as much basis in science as Marxism and Freudianism.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) Mr. Obama would be a disheartening president even during a super boom, with his grim demeanor and empty rhetoric, as well as his obvious hatred of business bravado.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) Long periods of recession, which tend to be self-perpetuating, are usually ended by war, or by preparations for it.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) The most socially subversive institution of our time is the one-parent family  (Paul Johnson Quotes) If I see a door ajar, I push on it to see how far it will open, and if it opens wide I go through it.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) The most intimidating world leader was Lyndon Johnson, who became U.S. President when John Kennedy was assassinated. He exulted in this power and liked to inspire fear.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) The Second World War took place not so much because no one won the First, but because the Versailles Treaty did not acknowledge this truth.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) The whole world depends on America ultimately, particularly Britain. And also, I love America - a marvelous country. But in a sense I don’t worry about America because I think America has such huge strengths - particularly its freedom of thought and expression - that it’s going to survive as a top nation for the foreseeable future.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) Global warming, like Marxism, is a political theory of actions, demanding compliance with its rules.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) If you depart from moral absolutes, you go into a bottomless pit. Communism and Nazism were catastrophic evils which both derived from moral relativism. Their differences were minor compared to their similarities.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) The writer learns to write, in the last resort, only by writing. He must get words onto paper even if he is dissatisfied with them. A young writer must cross many psychological barriers to acquire confidence in his capacity to produce good work-especially his first full-length book-and he cannot do this by staring at a piece of blank paper, searching for the perfect sentence.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) Where the quest for knowledge is relatively, and now almost absolutely, unrestrained, the public benefit will be great, especially where the certainty of the law ensures that knowledge is rewarded. This is exactly the combination that is the foundation of wealth-creation.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) Is there any possibility of giving international air travel, which we all need and use and hate, a touch of glamour, or even of reliable, soulless efficiency? I suspect future historians will puzzle over our failure. But by then, of course, we shall be in the age of mass space travel, with its fresh and unimaginable crop of horrors.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) The only thing to be said for air travel is speed. It makes possible travel on a scale unimaginable before our present age. Between the ages of 20 and four-score I visited every country in Europe, all save two in Latin America, ditto in Africa, and most of Asia, not counting eight trips to Australia and 60 to the United States - all by air.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) A capitalist economy hums when leading businessmen are bubbling with animal spirits and are prepared to sink their money into risky ventures.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) If anti-Semitism is a variety of racism, it is a most peculiar variety, with many unique characteristics. In my view as a historian, it is so peculiar that it deserves to be placed in a quite different category. I would call it an intellectual disease, a disease of the mind, extremely infectious and massively destructive.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) In all its myriad manifestations, the language of anti-Semitism through the ages is a dictionary of non-sequiturs and antonyms, a thesaurus of illogic and inconsistency.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) What strikes the historian surveying anti-Semitism worldwide over more than two millennia is its fundamental irrationality. It seems to make no sense, any more than malaria or meningitis makes sense.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) Indeed, the study of universities and the great men and women who have attended them leads me to think that the best of these schools are characterized not so much by what they teach and how they teach it but by the extent they provide opportunities and encouragement for students to teach themselves.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) Marxism, Freudianism, global warming. These are proof - of which history offers so many examples - that people can be suckers on a grand scale. To their fanatical followers they are a substitute for religion. Global warming, in particular, is a creed, a faith, a dogma that has little to do with science.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) Human beings are infinitely worth studying, especially the peculiarities that often go along with outstanding gifts.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) Hell is being trapped in a night-club with the’beautiful people’and forced to live in a’luxury penthouse flat’.  (Paul Johnson Quotes) A deliberate plan is not always necessary for the highest art; it emerges  (Paul Johnson Quotes) Euphemism is a human device to conceal the horrors of reality  (Paul Johnson Quotes)
