A Cautionary Note on the Ghostly Tale
Russell Kirk

Page 68 of 70. ‹ First  < 66 67 68 69 70 > 

The ... conservative is concerned, first of all, for the regeneration of spirit and character—with the perennial problem of the inner order of the soul, the restoration of the ethical understanding, and the religious sanction upon which any life worth living is founded. This is conservatism at its highest.

Russell Kirk
