„True Christianity at its most profound is as good as you get. … I think I've been lucky in the period which I've lived through because obviously I would have been for the chop in earlier days.“

Contesto: True Christianity at its most profound is as good as you get. … I think I've been lucky in the period which I've lived through because obviously I would have been for the chop in earlier days. The Inquisition would have rooted me out; even in the 19th century I would probably have been had up by a Bishop and asked to change my views, or to keep them to myself etc.... I think that so much of our Christian beliefs … are an attempt to convey through language something which is unsayable.

„I can’t see coherent political structures in the traditional sense lasting beyond the next twenty years, I don’t think that would be possible.“

—  Alan Moore English writer primarily known for his work in comic books 1953

De Abaitua interview (1998)
Contesto: I don’t know quite what I mean by my own metaphor, but I have feeling, it may bring in an even greater, faster space of fluid transmission, where no structures, as we used to understand structure, will sustain itself – we will have to come up with new notions of structure where things can change by the moment. I’m talking about physical structures, political structures, I can’t see coherent political structures in the traditional sense lasting beyond the next twenty years, I don’t think that would be possible.

„Dear Richard, I just received your letter; I will send the money order f 10 [10 guilders] immediately for the swimming of Saar [their daughter, 10 years old]. She seems to be going well ahead, I think, at least if she can jump off the springboard by herself. Her letter was nice and cheerful. Yes I would have liked her to come here [in Heeze] but I am just afraid that I may not be able to work regularly or that she will get rather bored.“

—  Suze Robertson Dutch painter 1855 - 1922

translation from original Dutch, Fons Heijnsbroek, 2018
(version in original Dutch / origineel citaat van Suze Robertson's brief:) Lieve Richard [ nl:Richard Bisschop ], Zo even ontving ik je brief; ik zal de postwissel zenden f 10 [10 gulden] meteen voor het zwemmen van Saar [hun dochter, 10 jaar oud]. Ze schijnt me nogal goed vooruit te gaan, tenminste als ze alleen van de plank af springt. Aardig was haar briefje en opgewekt. Ja wel graag had ik dat ze hier [Heeze] kwam maar ik ben alleen bang dat ik misschien niet geregeld zal kunnen werken òf dat zij zich nogal zal vervelen.

„I used to think Trump was an 11-year-old, an undeveloped schoolyard bully. I was off by about 10 years. His needs are more primitive, an infantile hunger for approval and praise, a craving that can never be satisfied.“

—  Charles Krauthammer American journalist 1950 - 2018

2010s, 2016, Donald Trump and the fitness threshold (2016)
Contesto: Of course we all try to protect our own dignity and command respect. But Trump’s hypersensitivity and unedited, untempered Pavlovian responses are, shall we say, unusual in both ferocity and predictability.
This is beyond narcissism. I used to think Trump was an 11-year-old, an undeveloped schoolyard bully. I was off by about 10 years. His needs are more primitive, an infantile hunger for approval and praise, a craving that can never be satisfied. He lives in a cocoon of solipsism where the world outside himself has value — indeed exists — only insofar as it sustains and inflates him.
