Quote of the day: “Conformity may give you a quiet life; it may even bring you to a University Chair. But all change in history, all advance, comes from the nonconformists. If there had been no trouble-makers, no Dissenters, we should still be living in caves.” (AJP Taylor’s The Trouble Makers: Dissent over Foreign Policy, 1792-1939)
