Citações Louis Kronenberger


„In art there are tears that do often lie too deep for thoughts.“

— Louis Kronenberger
p. 28. This is a play on "Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears", the last line of William Wordsworth's [ "Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood"].


„Conformity may not always reign in the prosperous bourgeois suburb, but it ultimately always governs.“

— Louis Kronenberger
["Conformity+may+not+always+reign+in+the+prosperous+bourgeois+suburb+but+it+ultimately+always+governs" Company Manners: A Cultural Inquiry into American Life] (1954), p. 122.


„On a very rough-and-ready basis we might define an eccentric as a man who is a law unto himself, and a crank as one who, having determined what the law is, insists on laying it down to others. An eccentric puts ice cream on steak simply because he likes it; should a crank do so, he would endow the act with moral grandeur and straightaway denounce as sinners (or reactionaries) all who failed to follow suit […] Cranks, at their most familiar, are a sort of peevish prophets, and it's not enough that they should be in the right; others must also be in the wrong.“
