Citadel Quotations

It appears to me that almost any man may like the spider spin from his own inwards his own airy citadel.

I've always disliked kamikazes, that is, people who commit suicide in order to kill others. Starting with the Japanese ones from World War II. I never considered them Pietro Miccas who torch the powder and go up with the citadel in order to block the arrival of the enemy troops at Torino. I never considered them soldiers.
Oriana Fallaci

Thomas Gibson

Archibald MacLeish

To endeavor to domineer over conscience, is to invade the citadel of heaven.
