A time when Britain fought two world wars but no world cups.  Cunk on Britain s1e3, BBC 2018

 

 

The 20th century was putting the sex into romance.  Lucy Worsley, A Very British Romance III, BBC 2015

 

 

Scientists created the entire architecture of the twentieth century: television, radio, X-rays, radar, MRI – all of that sprung forth from the mind of a scientist.  Professor Michio Kaku

 

 

In the twentieth century something strange happened to art.  Traditions that had held good for centuries suddenly felt badly out of date.  And a new breed of artists emerged to smash them to pieces. Great Artists in Their Own Words I: The Future is Now 1907-1939, BBC 2013

 

 

The First World War shaped the twentieth century.  The First World War e1: To Arms, Channel 4 2003

 

 

After I am dead ... people will say ... that I gave birth to the twentieth century.  Aleister Crowley, 1921

 

 

The horror of the Twentieth Century was the size of each new event, and the paucity of its reverberation.  Norman Mailer

 

 

The twentieth century may tell us that we have nothing to be complacent about in the recent history of humankind; but it also tells us that there is nothing inevitable about tyranny.  Rowan Williams

 

 

Doubt, it seems to me, is the central condition of a human being in the twentieth century.  Salman Rushdie

 

 

All in all, I would not have missed this century for the world.  Gore Vidal

 

 

The 90,000 films in British Pathé’s archive give us an important and enduring record of life in the twentieth century.  The Story of British Pathé IV: Around The World, BBC 2011

 

 

The twentieth century ended with its dreams in ruins.  The notion of the community as a voluntary association of enlightened citizens has died forever.  We realize how suffocatingly humane we’ve become, dedicated to moderation and the middle way.  The suburbanization of the soul has overrun our planet like the plague.  J G Ballard, Super-Cannes

 

 

The century on which we are entering – the century which will come out of this war – can be and must be the century of the common man.  Henry Wallace, speech 8th May 1942
