The world as it is

March 7, 2012 | Filed Under Quotes 

“Anyone too undisciplined, too self-righteous or too self-centered to live in the world as it is has a tendency to ‘idealize’ a world which ought to be. But no matter what political or religious directions such ‘idealists’ choose, their visions always share one telling characteristic: in their utopias, heavens or brave new worlds, their greatest personal weakness suddenly appears to be a strength.”

- Professor Gurtzner, Brothers K
