A Quote by Maya Angelou on love, revolution, loving, and women

The sadness of the women's movement is that they don't allow the necessity of love. See, I don't personally trust any revolution where love is not allowed.

Maya Angelou (1928 -)

A Quote by Marcel Proust on theory, earth, revolution, practice, undisturbed, time, and life

In theory one is aware that the earth revolves, but in practice one does not perceive it, the ground upon which one treads seems not to move, and one can live undisturbed.  So it is with Time in one's life.

A Quote by Sigmund Freud on revolution, civilization, dissatisfaction, and collapse

A civilization which leaves so large a number of its participants unsatisfied and drives them into revolt neither has nor deserves the prospect of a lasting existence.

A Quote by Samir Amin on capitalism, colonization, revolution, and history

The first revolution of the Western Hemisphere was that of the slaves of Saint Domingue (present-day Haiti) at the end of the eighteenth century, followed more than a century later by the Mexican revolution of the decade of 1910, and fifty years after that by the Cuban revolution. And if I do not cite here either the famous "American revolution" or that of the Spanish colonies that soon followed, it is because those only transferred the power of decision from the metropolis to the colonists so that they could go on doing the same thing, pursue the same project with even greater brutality, but without having to share the profits with the "mother country."

A Quote by C.S. Lewis on emergency regulations, state of emergency, and revolution

"Emergency regulations," said Feverstone.  "You'll never get the powers we want at Edgestow until the Government declares that a state of emergency exists there."
"Exactly," said Filostrato.  "It is folly to talk of peaceful revolutions...but until there is the disturbance, the firing, the barricades--no one gets powers to act effectively.  There is not enough what you call weight on the boat to steer him."

C.S. Lewis
