„The most surprising and original part of [ Lucien Goldmann's] work is, however, the attempt to compare— without assimilating one to another— religious faith and Marxist faith: both have in common the refusal of pure individualism (rationalist or empiricist) and the belief in trans-individual values— God for religion, the human community for socialism. In both cases the faith is based on a wager— the Pascalian wager on the existence of God and the Marxist wager on the liberation of humanity— that presupposes risk, the danger of failure and the hope of success.“

„It is evil things that we will be fighting against—brute force, bad faith, injustice, oppression and persecution—and against them I am certain that the right will prevail.“

Context: This morning the British Ambassador in Berlin handed the German Government a final note, stating that, unless we heard from them by 11 o'clock that they were prepared at once to withdraw their troops from Poland, a state of war would exist between us. I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received and that consequently this country is at war with Germany. … It is evil things that we will be fighting against— brute force, bad faith, injustice, oppression and persecution— and against them I am certain that the right will prevail. Broadcast from the Cabinet Rooms at 10 Downing Street (3 September 1939)
