“We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.”

See this and other “zingers” from George Weigel


  1. A fair set of aphorisms collected by Weigel. Note that none is original to him.

    Let me mention, in passing, that Weigel has a long association with “First Things” which, in the day, could not have more heartily supported US aggressions in Iraq and elsewhere (I canceled my subscription even before that). Weigel stuck firmly to that party line. He is also a biographer and über apologist for John Paul II. Which is why I have read nothing by Weigel himself in quite a long time.

    • Even a blind squirrel occasionally finds an acorn. In my opinion, Weigel actually does better than most. Your mileage may vary.
