Auberon Drinkwater quotes by Auberon Herbert
Listening to the Gospel on Palm Sunday, it struck me that many people criticise Pontius Pilate for his role in the affair while letting the multitude go scot free. Pilate did what little he could to dissuade them from the extremely unpleasant course of action on which they were set, but the multitude kept shouting for a crucifixion. Pilate could not have done more without provoking a riot. The crucifixion when it happened was a victory for direct democracy against the effete, liberal paternalism of Pilate.
If I am right, and the crucifixion be seen as an early victory for the principle of direct democracy, then it must follow ... that good men should struggle to confound and frustrate the multitude whenever possible. ~ Auberon Waugh

My reason for doubting the story is that I, too, like to carry small change in my socks, but I have found that with more that £15 or £20 worth it becomes impossible to walk. ~ Auberon Waugh

The modern State's greatest single instrument of oppression, its murderous tax on drink ... accounts for nearly all the miseries besetting our once-merry land; football hooliganism, colour prejudice, industrial unrest, cynicism about politicians; the list is endless. ~ Auberon Waugh
Auberon Drinkwater quotes by Auberon Waugh

They called him John Storm: John after his grandfather, but Storm after his father and his mother. ~ John Crowley
Auberon Drinkwater quotes by John Crowley
How, then, can the rights of three men exceed the rights of two men? In what possible way can the rights of three men absorb the rights of two men, and make them as if they had never existed. ~ Auberon Herbert

Auberon Drinkwater quotes by Auberon Herbert
Two things make smoking a virtuous habit. In the first place, the smoker, by paying billions of pounds in tobacco duty, pretty well pays for the entire hospital service. In the second place, by dying on average five years younger that the non-smoker, the smoker reduces the burden of old age on society as a whole. ~ Auberon Waugh

Maybe he could get used to this 'being a superhero' thing. The Ginger Avenger. ~ Karl Drinkwater
Auberon Drinkwater quotes by Karl Drinkwater
It is commonly asserted and accepted that Paradise Lost is among the two or three greatest English poems; it may justly be taken as the type of supreme poetic achievement in our literature. ~ John Drinkwater
Auberon Drinkwater quotes by John Drinkwater
Natalie was one of the confident skaters weaving in and out of bodies, natural movement that succeeded because there wasn't too much thought put into it. Relaxed. It reminded him of wild particles pulled and repelled into a rapidly curving orbit. Pattern within apparent chaos. ~ Karl Drinkwater
Auberon Drinkwater quotes by Karl Drinkwater
At any rate it seems unlikely that there is any truth in the rumour as I have just this moment invented it. ~ Auberon Waugh
Auberon Drinkwater quotes by Auberon Waugh
But in the finished art of the song the use of words has no connection with the use of words in poetry. ~ John Drinkwater
Auberon Drinkwater quotes by John Drinkwater
History, having destroyed the religion as the opium of the people, now requires that they be given a taste of the real stuff. ~ Auberon Waugh
Auberon Drinkwater quotes by Auberon Waugh
In England, we have a curious institution called the Church of England. Its strength has always been in the fact that on any moral or political issue it can produce such a wide divergence of opinion that nobody
from the Pope to Mao Tse-tung
can say with any confidence that he is not an Anglican. Its weaknesses are that nobody pays much attention to it and very few people attend its functions. ~ Auberon Waugh
