More From Quentin Crisp
- "When I told the people of Northern Ireland that I was an atheist, a woman in the audience stood up and said, ‘Yes, but is it the God of the Catholics or the God of the Protestants in whom you don’t believe?"
- "My mother protected me from the world and my father threatened me with it."
- "It’s no good running a pig farm badly for 30 years while saying, ‘Really, I was meant to be a ballet dancer.’ By then, pigs will be your style."
More In Freedom
- "I extend that to the abortion issue, I extend that to the so-called gay rights issue, I think this is a freedom principle and consistent with the analysis in the economic area as well."― William Weld
- "The liberals think government exists to fix what’s wrong with America. They find fault with our Constitution, our economic model and our core values. We disagree with the premise of their argument. We believe there’s nothing wrong with America that an extra dose of freedom won’t cure."― Rick Perry
- "Israel was not created in order to disappear – Israel will endure and flourish. It is the child of hope and the home of the brave. It can neither be broken by adversity nor demoralized by success. It carries the shield of democracy and it honors the sword of freedom."― John F. Kennedy
