Scratch any cynic and you will find a disappointed idealist.  George Carlin

 

 

America is the only idealistic nation in the world.  Woodrow Wilson, speech September 1919

 

 

All idealism is falsehood in the face of necessity.  Friedrich Nietzsche

 

 

All history is man’s efforts to realise ideals.  Eamon de Valera 

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

The ideals which have always shone before me and filled me with joy are goodness, beauty, and truth.  Albert Einstein 

 

 

You’re an idealist, and I pity you as I would the village idiot.  Stanley Kubrick

 

 

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.  Susan Sontag, The Volcano Lover: A Romance   

 

 

You can’t fault Morris’s idealism though ... he became more political ... the more militant Socialist League.  Andrew Graham-Dixon, The Art of Gothic: Britains Midnight Hour 3/3: Blood for Sale: Gothic Goes Global, BBC 2014
