a few of Don Colacho’s aphorisms

"Let us not give stupid opinions the pleasure of scandalizing us."

"Where there are no vestiges of old Christian charity, even the purest courtesy is somewhat cold, hypocritical, hard."

"It is customary to proclaim rights in order to be able to violate duties."

"The writer who does not insist on convincing us wastes less of our time, and sometimes even convinces us."

"The relativity of taste is an excuse adopted by ages that have bad taste."

"Modern man has no interior life: hardly even internal conflicts."

"When he is stripped of the Christian tunic and the classical toga, there is nothing left of the European but a pale-skinned barbarian."
