Text Quotes
Nothing in human life is inherently private  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) Those who sentimentally indulge humanity do it no favours  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) It is capitalism, not Marxism, that trades in futures  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) Today, nostalgia is almost as unacceptable as racism  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) We face a conflict between civilisation and culture, which used to be on the same side. Civilisation means rational reflection, material wellbeing, individual autonomy and ironic self-doubt; culture means a form of life that is customary, collective, passionate, spontaneous, unreflective and irrational  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) The role of the intellectual, so it is said, is to speak truth to power. Noam Chomsky has dismissed this pious tag on two grounds. For one thing, power knows the truth already; it is just busy trying to conceal it. For another, it is not those in power who need the truth, but those they oppress  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) Virtue is something you have to get good at, like playing the trombone or tolerating bores at parties. Being a virtuous human being takes practice; and those who are brilliant at being human (what Christians call the saints) are the virtuosi of the moral sphere - the Pavarottis and Maradonas of virtue  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) Ideology... is a kind of contemporary mythology, a realm which has purged itself of ambiguity and alternative possibility  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) After all, if you do not resist the apparently inevitable, you will never know how inevitable the inevitable was  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) The German philosopher Walter Benjamin had the curious notion that we could change the past. For most of us, the past is fixed while the future is open  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) For Aristotle, goodness is a kind of prospering in the precarious affair of being human  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) I attacked Dawkins’s book on God because I think he is theologically illiterate  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) I value my Catholic background very much. It taught me not to be afraid of rigorous thought, for one thing  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) Yahweh is presented in the Jewish Bible as stateless and nationless. He can’t be used as a totem or fetish in that way  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) Cynicism and naivety lie cheek by jowl in the American imagination; if the United States is one of the most venal nations on Earth, it is also one of the most earnestly idealistic  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) Irish fiction is full of secrets, guilty pasts, divided identities. It is no wonder that there is such a rich tradition of Gothic writing in a nation so haunted by history  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) The conversion of agnostic High Tories to the Anglican church is always rather suspect. It seems too pat and predictable, too clearly a matter of politics rather than faith  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) One side-effect of the so-called war on terror has been a crisis of liberalism. This is not only a question of alarmingly illiberal legislation, but a more general problem of how the liberal state deals with its anti-liberal enemies  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) There is no way in which we can retrospectively erase the Treaty of Vienna or the Great Irish Famine. It is a peculiar feature of human actions that, once performed, they can never be recuperated. What is true of the past will always be true of it  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) It is silly to call fat people ‘’gravitationally challenged’’ - a self-righteous fetishism of language which is no more than a symptom of political frustration.  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) The political currents that topped the global agenda in the late 20th century - revolutionary nationalism, feminism and ethnic struggle - place culture at their heart.  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) In the end, the humanities can only be defended by stressing how indispensable they are; and this means insisting on their vital role in the whole business of academic learning, rather than protesting that, like some poor relation, they don’t cost much to be housed.  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) It is false to believe that the sun revolves around the earth, but it is not absurd  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) After all, if you do not resist the apparently inevitable, you will never know how inevitable the inevitable was.  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) Genuine equality means not treating everyone the same, but attending equally to everyone’s different needs.  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) Real men study law and engineering, while ideas and values are for sissies. The humanities should constitute the core of any university worth the name.  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) Dawkins considers that all faith is blind faith, and that Christian and Muslim children are brought up to believe unquestioningly. Not even the dim-witted clerics who knocked me about at grammar school thought that.  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) What’s wrong with a bit of nostalgia between friends? I think nostalgia sometimes gets too much of a bad press.  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) You’ve got to have a sense of different audiences. I’m a kind of performer manque - I come from a long line of failed actors!  (Terry Eagleton Quotes) It is in Rousseau’s writing above all that history begins to turn from upper-class honour to middle-class humanitarianism. Pity, sympathy and compassion lie at the centre of his moral vision. Values associated with the feminine begin to infiltrate social existence as a whole, rather than being confined to the domestic sphere  (Terry Eagleton Quotes)
