69,168.  Scratch any cynic and you will find a disappointed idealist.  (Cynicism & Ideal)  George Carlin

 

 

28,956.  America is the only idealistic nation in the world.  (United States of America & Ideal)  Woodrow Wilson, speech September 1919

 

 

72,192.  All idealism is falsehood in the face of necessity.  (Falsehood & Ideal)  Friedrich Nietzsche

 

 

139,467.  ‘Where you see ideals, I see what is human, alas, all too human.’  (Think & Humanity & Philosophy & Psychology & Ideal)  Human, All Too Human 1/3: Beyond Good and Evil, BBC 1999

 

 

75,873.  All history is man’s efforts to realise ideals.  (History & Idealism)  Eamon de Valera 

 

 

76,838.  Ideals are an imaginative understanding of that which is desirable in that which is possible.  Walter Lippmann           

 

 

76,839.  I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.  Anne Frank

 

 

76,840.  The highest ideals are human intelligence, creativity and love. Respect these above all.  Penn Jillette

 

 

76,841.  I see you’re a man with ideals.  I better be going before you’ve still got them.  Mae West

 

 

925.  The ideals which have always shone before me and filled me with joy are goodness, beauty, and truth.  (Truth & Good & Beauty & Einstein & Ideal)  Albert Einstein 

 

 

76,852.  You’re an idealist, and I pity you as I would the village idiot.  (Idiot & Ideal)  Stanley Kubrick

 

 

77,260.  We like to stress the commonness of heroes.  Essences seem undemocratic.  We feel oppressed by the call to greatness.  We regard an interest in glory or perfection as a sign of mental unhealthiness, and have decided that high achievers, who are called overachievers, owe their surplus ambition to a defect in mothering (either too little or too much).  We want to admire but think we have a right not to be intimidated.  We dislike feeling inferior to an ideal.  So away with ideals, with essences.  The only ideals allowed are healthy ones – those everyone may aspire to, or comfortably imagine oneself possessing.  (Inferiority & Ideal)  Susan Sontag, The Volcano Lover: A Romance
