Cults

A cult is a religion with no political power.
Tom Wolfe (b. 1931), U.S. journalist, author. In Our Time, ch. 2, "Jonestown" (internal link1980).

Laissez-faire

The attitude is we live and let live. This is actually an amazing change in values in a rather short time and it's an example of freedom from religion.
Tom Wolfe (b. 1931), U.S. author, journalist. International Herald Tribune (Paris, 8 Sept. 1988).

Writers

I'd rather be a internal linklightning rod than a seismograph.
Ken Kesey (b. 1935), U.S. author. Quoted in: Tom Wolfe, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, ch. 1 (1968).

Liberals

A liberal is a conservative who has been arrested.
Tom Wolfe (b. 1931), U.S. author, journalist. Bonfire of the Vanities, ch. 24 (1987).

Modernism and Postmodernism

Not "Seeing is Believing," you ninny, but "Believing is Seeing." For modern art has become completely literary: the paintings and other works exist only to illustrate the text.
Tom Wolfe (b. 1931), U.S. journalist, author. The Painted Word, ch. 1 (1975).

Paris

Napoleon wanted to turn Paris into Rome under the Caesars, only with louder music and more marble. And it was done. His architects gave him the Arc de Triomphe and the Madeleine. His nephew Napoleon III wanted to turn Paris into Rome with Versailles piled on top, and it was done. His architects gave him the Paris Opera, an addition to the Louvre, and miles of new boulevards.
Tom Wolfe (b. 1931), U.S. journalist, author. _From internal linkBauhaus to Our House_, Introduction (1981).

internal linkTime

We are always acting on what has just finished happening. It happened at least 1/30th of a second ago. We think we're in the present, but we aren't. The present we know is only a movie of the past.
Tom Wolfe (b. 1931), U.S. author, journalist. Ken Kesey's philosophy, as explained in The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, ch. 11 (1968).
