I am sticking as closely to my subject as I can; for my subject is precisely this, that it is the masses, the majority- this infernal compact majority- that poisons the sources of our moral life and infects the ground we stand on.
Don't use that foreign word ideals. We have that excellent native word lies.
A minority may be right, and a majority is always wrong.
Never wear your best trousers when you go out to fight for freedom and truth.
If you doubt yourself, then indeed you stand on shaky ground.
