What a wonderful human being--was touched by him through his writings.

Stunned when I read THE HOUSE OF INTELLECT in NYC 1971, I learned how to think seeing the whole picture develop from its details. Mr. Barzun will always be one of my heroes.

Here's one of my favorite passages of my grandfather's, from a lecture he gave in 1969 entitled "Present Day Thoughts on the Quality of Life." He closed the lecture with these words:

"What the future will be is not the business of an historian to say. But whether the future lies with or without industry, with or without democracy, with or without science and technology, it is at least conceivable that the future will be without them, either through catastrophe or willful rejection. No matter. What is certain is that the desire not for life alone, not for brutish life, but for a special quality in life will not cease, even for the last shivering inhabitant of a devastated planet. That desire is planted deep, and it seeks its fulfillment, which is what makes humanity other than animal."
