I use to live two blocks away from the street that bears Donoso Cortés' name here in Madrid. Until now, that was my only contact with him or his oeuvre (the chap has lapsed into almost complete oblivion in Spain, were it not for the street).

I don't think I was missing much ::), but thanks anyway for bringing him to my attention. ;)

Un abrazo, Andrei.

Good day, Rafael. It's precisely of you that I was thinking when posting that longish quote. I said to myself "Let's see if Rafael has ever heard of M. Le Marquis de Valdegamas." :D

Btw, you missed this one:

Normally I don't like quotes, as they are too simplified, but this one I heard of today, I really like.

From Schopenhauer:

“Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.”
