A Quote III — RIP Scruton

It feels just like yesterday, me as a young lad sneaking into youtube to watch some Scruton.

The quote:

« After a glass or two, I find myself able to do what we all should do, and which only pride forbids, which is to rejoice in the success of our rivals. After all, a world that contains success is better than a world without it, and under the influence of wine all success casts credit on the drinker. Wine offers a glimpse of the world sub specie aeternitatis, in which good things show their value, no matter who possesses them. »

Requiescat in pace
