I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth.

— William F. Buckley, Jr.

  1. I heard Buckley speak in person on campus years ago. Such wonderful command of the language. Such presence. Such energy.

  2. We were lucky, here at the Mercantile Library, to have had not only WFB but his son, Christopher, be (in different years) our keynote speakers at the big yearly fundraiser.

    Excellent speeches by both!
