Revolution quotes

David Harris
It's a sad and stupid thing to have to proclaim yourself a revolutionary just to be a decent man.

Victor Hugo
Most commonly revolt is born of material circumstances but insurrection is always a moral phenomenon. Revolt is Masaniello, who led the Neapolitan insurgents in 1647 but insurrection is Spartacus. Insurrection is a thing of the spirit, revolt is a thing of the stomach.

Martin Luther King
A true revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our past and present policies. On the one hand, we are called to play the Good Samaritan on life's roadside, but that will be only an initial act. One day we must come to see that the whole Jericho Road must be transformed so that men and women will not be constantly beaten and robbed as they make their journey on life's highway. True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.

Albert Camus
Revolution, in order to be creative, cannot do without either a moral or metaphysical rule to balance the insanity of history.

Edward George Bulwer-Lytton
A reform is a correction of abuses a revolution is a transfer of power.

Havelock Ellis
All civilization has from time to time become a thin crust over a volcano of revolution

Adolf Hitler
For the greatest revolutionary changes on this earth would not have been thinkable if their motive force, instead of fanatical, yes, hysterical passion, had been merely the bourgeois virtues of law and order

Huey Newton
Too many so-called leaders of the movement have been made into celebrities and their revolutionary fervor destroyed by mass media. They become Hollywood objects and lose identification with the real issues. The task is to transform society only the people can do that
