Famous quotes containing the words slogans, italian and/or fascist:

    The art of the critic in a nutshell: to coin slogans without betraying ideas. The slogans of an inadequate criticism peddle ideas to fashion.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)

    The French courage proceeds from vanity—the German from phlegm—the Turkish from fanaticism & opium—the Spanish from pride—the English from coolness—the Dutch from obstinacy—the Russian from insensibility—but the Italian from anger.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    I have often thought that if a rational Fascist dictatorship were to exist, then it would choose the American system.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)
