William F. Buckley, Jr. writes of Evelyn Waugh:
“He knew people, he knew his century, and, having come to know it, he had faith only in the will of God, and in individual man’s latent capacity to strive towards it. He acknowledged the need to live in this century, … ; but never, ever, to acclimate yourself to it.”
William F. Buckley Jr., “Evelyn Waugh, R.I.P.“, nationalreview.com, November 17, 2005.
“Be not conformed to the spirit of the age, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind ….” Romans 12:2.
