There is a lot more information, and a lot more to challenge. One thing youth resent is when elders caricature their generation. It was a derogatory slap. The protesters, highly educated but often unemployed, shot back that, yes, they were Ni-Nis — they supported neither center-left Socialists, nor the center-right Popular Party, something akin in the US to a pox on both Democratic and Republican houses.
A banner atop a building stated: Howker, who just turned Not that youth are free from self-criticism. In Luton, a blue-collar city northwest of London, Michael Toms, 24, works the late shift at the train station. The last express to London is around midnight, and Mr. Toms walks the platform notifying stragglers of the timing. Luton is heavily ethnic, South Asian and Muslim, and proudly so, but it is also a home of the far right youth gang, the English Defense League.
Toms says that EDL members often kick up a fuss at the Luton station after football matches. They think about tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. Tall and burly, he wears a monogrammed oxford shirt and is about to start an internship with Price Waterhouse in Madrid.
He stands in line outside the business school he graduated from, points inside to the office staff, and says that to get ahead one must avoid bureaucracy. The private sector is going to save Spain. It depends on us, no one else. Alberto Canfran, 25, a biologist in Madrid who has a grant to work in the US, agrees with the indignados can-do spirit but faults his cohorts more broadly.
Our future is in our hands. They have families, meet with friends, watch a lot of film, live on the Internet, get along.

An international Roman Catholic youth meeting in Madrid this summer drew more than a million participants. And not all young people reject the notion of a unified Continent. But there is also a lot of experimenting with ideas from the East, alternative medicine, art therapy. Many youth say an impending global catastrophe, whether economic or ecological, is not far off. We see how … power corrupts, and our leaders all end up the same way, chasing money. A slightly anarchic spirit exists among many of them, and some political scientists see a shift toward a proliferation of small left parties, like the Pirate Party that recently captured many votes in local elections in Berlin.
But not all youth fish from the port side. Thierry Rassfestin, 21, joined the youth wing of the center-right French ruling party but was turned off, and moved further right. Rassfestin, as an openly gay male, represents a change in the composition of the French far right. We must hand back the power to the people; give them the sovereignty.

These are no strangers to European complexities. Then there is Jacques Delors, a main architect of the modern European Union. Delors in the s reconciled the left in France with a free market economy to integrate Europe, and was president of the European commission. Hessel was living quietly in Paris, reading the poet Rainer Maria Rilke, and tending his garden. But the climate of antipathy and corruption he felt in France — and the abandonment of ideals he believed were prevalent in the s through UN summits on women, climate, and social development — outraged him.

Quel scandale ce fut alors! Je ne parle pas du communisme, mais du totalitarisme russe. As today marks the 40th anniversary of this landmark event, I have been reading a few articles about it. There is a thesis that he did actually say it, but people on earth did not hear it due to transmission static:. In any case, he confirmed that he intended to say it. The other story, the funny one, told below, turned out to be a hoax. But just before he re-entered the lander, he made the enigmatic remark: Many people thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival Soviet Cosmonaut.
However, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs. On July 5, , in Tampa Bay, Florida, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26 year old question to Armstrong. This time he finally responded. Gorsky had died and so Neil Armstrong felt he could answer the question. In when he was a kid in a small Midwest town, he was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. His neighbors were Mr. As he leaned down to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. You want oral sex?
Rien de tel en France. Ron Howard en rit encore. Le public est friand de films politiques si ceux-ci ne versent pas dans la propagande ou le militantisme cru. Des gens qui ne voient pas, je les connais un peu. Mais ce ne sont que des exceptions. Oui, mais il y a plus grave.
Mais on ne se pose pas la question fondamentale: Entre temps, comment passer le cap? Ils ont fait Sciences Po comme moi. Donc, ils ont appris cela. Je ne dis pas cela en un sens moralisateur.

It was quite impressive to see such a personality sob like a baby. His tears showed that he had a thread of dignity left.

They do not feel any enmity against me as an individual, nor I against them. They are only doing their duty, as the saying goes. Most of them, I have no doubt, are kind-hearted law-abiding men who would never dream of committing murder in private life. On the other hand, if one of them succeeds in blowing me to pieces with a well-placed bomb, he will never sleep any worse for it. He is serving his country, which has the power to absolve him from evil.
Ces deux phrases, Mona Chollet aurait pu les signer des deux mains. Le livre aurait pu avoir pour sous- titre: A commencer par les chiraquiens et villepinistes. So it was in the French Revolution, when dread of foreign armies produced the reign of terror. And it is to be feared that the Nazis, as defeat draws nearer, will increase the intensity of their campaign for exterminating Jews. Fear generates impulses of cruelty, and therefore promotes such superstitious beliefs as seem to justify cruelty. Neither a man nor a crowd nor a nation can be trusted to act humanely or to think sanely under the influence of a great fear.
And for this reason poltroons are more prone to cruelty than brave men, and are also more prone to superstition. When I say this, I am thinking of men who are brave in all respects, not only in facing death.

Many a man will have the courage to die gallantly, but will not have the courage to say, or even to think, that the cause for which he is asked to die is an unworthy one. Obloquy is, to most men, more painful than death; that is one reason why, in times of collective excitement, so few men venture to dissent from the prevailing opinion.
No Carthaginian denied Moloch, because to do so would have required more courage than was required- to face death in battle. Et de se lamenter: For one does not create human society on mounds of corpses. Sarkozy has changed how France does business with Israel. It could help transform the Middle East. In the name of diplomacy, leaders sometimes play little tricks. After offering a glowing report on Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, he simultaneously shook hands with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, as cameras snapped away.
Then he slyly drew his own hands together, and theirs with his—leading to a richly symbolic three-way handshake. Abbas smiled discretely, and Olmert—who in other circumstances might have scowled at the move—broke into a broad, toothy grin. But Olmert has found a hand to lift him up in a very unlikely place: But the changes have been dramatic. Until very recently, France and Israel have had bitterly difficult relations.
But Sarkozy has changed all that by very publicly embracing the Jewish state.
It was only the second time a French president had appeared before the Israeli Parliament and was the first time in more than a quarter century. Sarkozy used the occasion to tell Israel: At the same time, Sarkozy is working hard to lure Israel back to the negotiating table, while doing the same with the Palestinians, Lebanon, Syria and others. Over the past year, that has involved some controversial steps.
The president gave Libyan leader Muammar Kaddafi a gaudy red-carpet welcome in Paris in December, and Sarkozy gave Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad a front-row seat for the Bastille Day parade sparking discontent in the French military, where many link Syria to the deaths of 58 French U.
Sarkozy has not let the incomplete international investigation into that bombing deter him or his strategy of talking to almost anyone if he thinks it might be constructive. At the recent summit, Sarkozy lauded Arab leaders for merely sitting alongside Israel. Islam and the West.

It is a balancing act that is very complex. It is a gamble. Indeed, Chirac also tried hard to improve diplomacy with Syria before concluding it would lead nowhere. But Sarkozy is aiming higher and at multiple targets, and he is also armed with firmer support from Israel. Moreover, he has timing on his side. Sarkozy is trying to step into that breach. But if he manages to make even incremental progress, he may find himself lauded by all sides—a nimble trick indeed. Le vrai candidat plagierait-il le faux?

An Anthology by Robert L. Remark to Adam Smith , as attributed in P. The adjective is the enemy of the substantive. The adjective is the enemy of the noun. Misattributed [ edit ] Anything that is too stupid to be spoken is sung. Let me remind you that Voltaire said that what was too silly to be said could be sung. This quote has also been attributed to Joseph Addison.
In The Spectator , 21 March , Addison wrote of "an establish'd Rule, which is receiv'd as such to this Day, That nothing is capable of being well set to Musick, that is not Nonsense. This is a proverb which can be found in Robert Codrington's "Youth's Behaviour, Second Part" and in Thomas Fuller's "Gnomologia" Defend me from my friends; I can defend myself from my enemies. The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease. Percivall, this is Ben Jonson 's "satirical definition of physic".
God is a circle whose center is everywhere and circumference nowhere. For a discussion of this quotation, which is uncertain in origin but was quoted long before Voltaire, see the following: Though these words are regularly attributed to Voltaire, they were first used by Evelyn Beatrice Hall , writing under the pseudonym of Stephen G Tallentyre in The Friends of Voltaire , as a summation of Voltaire's beliefs on freedom of thought and expression.
