"One of the paradoxes of [Berlin's] temperament was to wish that he had been one of life's noble intransigents - those who did not bend, but made others submit to their will. Look at my heroes, he used to say, Not one of them was a nice, grass-eating, accommodating liberal. They were all hard, difficult, 'impossible' characters - Toscanini, Churchill, Weizmann - men whose vices he excused because they did not include a fatal eagerness to please." (p. 35)
