Confederacies in vice, or leagues of pleasure;
Ours has severest virtue for its basis,
And such a friendship ends not but with life.“

—  Joseph Addison, kniha Cato

„I do not believe that friendship today can flower out — can come out — of political life. I do believe that if there is something like a political life to be — to remain for us, in this world of technology — then it begins with friendship.“

—  Ivan Illich austrian philosopher and theologist 1926 - 2002

We the People interview (1996)
Kontext: I do not believe that friendship today can flower out — can come out — of political life. I do believe that if there is something like a political life to be — to remain for us, in this world of technology — then it begins with friendship.
Therefore my task is to cultivate disciplined, self-denying, careful, tasteful friendships. Mutual friendships always. I-and-you and, I hope, a third one, out of which perhaps community can grow. Because perhaps here we can find what the good is.

—  Robert Louis Stevenson, kniha Across the Plains

Zdroj: Across the Plains (1892), Ch. IX, Beggars.
