  1. Cathryn Cluver Ashbrook:

    The European relationship has changed and will now be shrouded in skepticism, the arrival of a Joe Biden administration has yet to be embraced with the same fanfare as Barack Obama as President-elect, because Donald Trump has done more damage to the relationship than George W. Bush. Trump's outward aggression affected all aspects of European life, be it trade, defense or even the emotional shared ideas and cultural ties. All those things suddenly seem debased and of less value.

  2. Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man 1871:

    Man with all his noble qualities, with sympathy which feels for the most debased, with benevolence which extends not only to other men but to the humblest living creature, with his god-like intellect which has penetrated into the movements and constitution of the solar system- with all these exalted powers- Man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.

  3. Jacqueline Dougé:

    If as a human being, you understand that another human being debased, dehumanized and not treated like you are just because of the color of their skin, I think it's important to feel something. I think is important to acknowledge privilege, i think it's important to ask what am I not doing by being silent that perpetuates this ? How do we open the door so that everyone sits at the table ? That's only done when each of us understands that we have the power to do that.

  4. Lewis Lapham:

    We might make a public moan in the newspapers about the decay of conscience, but in private conversation, no matter what crimes a man may have committed or how cynically he may have debased his talent or his friends, variations on the answer Yes, but I did it for the money, satisfy all but the most tiresome objections.

  5. Octavio Paz:

    Man, even man debased by the neocapitalism and pseudosocialism of our time, is a marvelous being because he sometimes speaks. Language is the mark, the sign, not of his fall but of his original innocence. Through the Word we may regain the lost kingdom and recover powers we possessed in the far-distant past.
