A Pale-Skinned Barbarian

Nicolás Gómez Dávila (1913-1994), Escolios a un Texto Implícito: Selección (Bogotá: Villegas Editores, 2001), p. 413 (tr. by Stephen at Don Colacho's Aphorisms):
When he is stripped of the Christian tunic and the classical toga, there is nothing left of the European but a pale-skinned barbarian.

Al despojarse de la túnica cristiana y de la toga clásica, no queda del europeo sino un bárbaro pálido.
