Quote of the Day: December 31, 2011

"[A]s William Morris put it so finely in The Dream of John Ball: 'Men fight and lose the battle, and the thing that they fought for comes about in spite of defeat, and when it comes it turns out not to be what they meant, and other men have to fight for what they meant under another name.'"

-Christopher Hitchens, Letters to a Young Contrarian
