Quotes

"I guess that they're doing a European-style brewing, or that there's something more exacting about it," he said. "In farmers' markets, pints are making a big comeback, and high-end bottled water comes in liters. A German-style beer garden has everything in liters."
"We have to be clearer now about how diverse cultures which inevitably contain differences can find the essential common purpose also without which no society can flourish."
...So he resorts to the imaginings of one of the characters of novelist Anthony Powell, who thinks that Bloomsbury must have been "...every house stuffed with Moderns from cellar to garret. High-pitched voices adumbrating absolute values, rational statse of mind, intellectual integrity, civilized personal relationships, significant form…. The Fitzroy Street Barbera is uncorked. 'Le Sacre du Printemps' turned on, a hand slides up a leg.... All are at one now, values and lovers" (page 11)
