Quotes of the Era

Post  God on Sun Apr 10, 2016 9:55 am

Just a few flavour comments about the current time period...

1900


'The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
God made them high and lowly,
And ordered their estate.'
- 'All Things Bright and Beautiful' [Anglican hymn]

'I contend that we are the first race in the world, and that the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race.'
- Cecil Rhodes [Businessman & Politician]

'We must find new lands from which we can easily obtain raw materials and cheap labour from the natives of the colonies. They would also provide a dumping ground for the surplus goods produced in our factories.'
- Cecil Rhodes [Businessman & Politician]

'He became an officer and a gentleman, which is an enviable thing.'
- Rudyard Kipling [Novelist]

'With the black marble which gives the fireplace the air of a miniature family vault, to suggest early Victorian commercial respectability, belief in money, Bible fetishism, fear of hell always at war with fear of poverty, instinctive horror of the passionate character of art, love and Roman Catholic religion, and all the first fruits of plutocracy in the early generations of the industrial revolution.'
- George Bernard Shaw [Novelist and Playwright]

'Whether our reformers admit it or not, the economic and social inferiority of women is responsible for prostitution.'
- Emma Goldman [Social Activist]

‘As we gazed in horror at it, we saw drains and sewers emptying their filthy contents into it; we saw a whole tier of doorless privies in the open road, common to men and women built over it; we heard bucket after bucket of filth splash into it... the condition of a class of people whose misery, ignorance, and vice, amidst all the immense wealth and great knowledge of “the first city in the world”, is, to say the very least, a national disgrace to us.’
- Henry Mayhew [Journalist]
