Retro Quote – Alistair Cooke

The normal cycle in the life and death of great nations has been first a powerful tyranny broken by revolt, the enjoyment of liberty, the abuse of liberty and back to tyranny again. As I see it, in this country a land of the most persistent idealism and the blandest cynicism the race is on between its decadence and its vitality.”
