Modern civilized man cannot endure cruelty, pain and suffering and is more merciful than men of the past, but this is not because he is morally and spiritually higher than they. He fears pain and suffering more than they did; he is more effeminate, less firm, patient and courageous than they; in other words he is spiritually less strong. Nicolas Berdyaev (via das-grablied)
The virtues praised by Homer are not moral but aesthetic. He believes in the unity of the human being defined by his style and his acts. Thus men define themselves with reference to the beautiful and the ugly, the noble and the vile, not good or evil. Or, to put it differently, the striving for the beautiful is the condition of the good. Dominique Venner (via vandrare)

To be a reactionary is to understand that man is a problem without a human solution.

Ser reaccionario es comprender que el hombre es un problema sin solución humana.
