Gold, Jerry! Gold!

Three more aphorisms of gold from Nicolás Gómez Dávila:

The majority of properly modern customs would be crimes in an authentically civilized society.


The Christian knows with certainty what his personal behavior should be, but he can never state for certain that he is not making a mistake by adopting this or that social reform.


The fool, seeing that customs change, says that morality varies.
