Russell Kirk: Emulating the Divine Image.

14 March 2012

“. . . the belief that (as Marcus Aurelius wrote) we human beings are made for cooperation, like the hands, like the feet; but that we lose our dignity if, exceeding the limits of cooperation, we force others to imitate our personality, or slavishly mold our personality upon some collectivist model. Man has dignity only when he seeks to emulate not another man, but a divine image.”

Russell Kirk
