Tea time and Iris Murdoch

Tea time and Iris Murdoch

.

“Freedom may be a value in politics, but it is not a value in morals.”

“We need a moral philosophy which can speak significantly of Freud and Marx and out of which aesthetic and political views can be generated. We need a moral philosophy in which the concept of love, so rarely mentioned now, can once again be made central.”

“The most essential and fundamental aspect of culture is the study of literature, since this is an education in how to picture and understand human situations.”

“Violence is born of the desire to escape oneself.”

“I think being a woman is like being Irish… Everyone says you’re important and nice, but you take second place all the time.”

 “Time can divorce us from the reality of people, it can separate us from people and turn them into ghosts. Or rather it is we who turn them into ghosts or demons. Some kinds of fruitless preoccupations with the past.”
