- Chaucer: Chivalry has contributed enormously to women's happiness

- Shakespeare: Some choices are inherently destructive (it's just built into the nature of things)

- Jane Austen: Most men would be improved if they were more patriarchal than they actually are

- Dickens: Reformers can do more harm than the injustices they set out to reform

- T. S. Eliot: Tradition is necessary to culture

- Flannery O'Connor: Even modern American liberals aren't immune to original sin
