Great Quote – Don DeLillo

by Bryan

“War is the form nostalgia takes when men are hard-pressed to say something good about their country.”

From White Noise

The full quote, if you’re interested:

“Nostalgia is a product of dissatisfaction and rage. It’s a settling of grievances between the present and past. The more powerful the nostalgia, the closer you come to violence. War is the form nostalgia takes when men are hard-pressed to say something good about their country.”
