|And Yet More Quotes
|"Pray for the dead, and fight like hell for the living."
- Mary Harris "Mother" Jones
"Always forgive your enemys, - nothing annoys them more." - Oscar Wilde
"Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he who's heart is firm and conscience approves his conduct will pursue his principals unto death."
- Thomas Paine, 1776
"I don't give a damn about semi-radicals!" - Helen Keller, 1916
"Capitalism is proud of its prisons which fitly symbolize the charachter of its institutions and constitute one of the chief elements of its philanthropy." - Eugene V. Debs, 1927
"The only penetrable point of a tyrant is fear of death." - Frederick Douglass, 1860
"The protection the government owes you and fails to provide, you are morally to provide for yourselves... when the law fails and becomes the bulwark of crime and oppression, then an appeal to force is not only morally justified, but becomes a patriotic duty."

"If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its mighty waters. This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without demand. It never did and never will."
- Frederick Douglass, 1857
"When great changes occur in history, when great principals are involved as a rule the majority are wrong. The minority are usually right. In every age there have been a few heroic souls who have been misunderstood, maligned, persecuted, sometimes put to death. Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Paine... were the rebels of their day. When they began to chafe under the rule of a foreign king and to sow the seed of resistance among the colonists they were oppossed by the people and denounced by the press."
- Eugene V. Debs, 1918
"Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands of it."
- Albert Einstein, physicist
"I'd rather vote for something and not get it than vote for something I don't want, and get it." - Eugene V. Debs
"Socialism will not and cannot be created by decrees; nor can it be established by any government, however socialistic. Socialism must be created by the mases, by every proletarian. Where the chains of Capitalism are forged, there they must be broken. Only that is Socialism, and only thus can Socialism be created."
- Rosa Luxemburg
"It is no means enough to steal the property of others; you are in error if you keep to yourself the wealth which God has created for all. He who does not give to others what he possesses is a murderer, a killer; when he keeps for his own use what would provide for the poor, one can say that he is slaying all those that could have lived from his plenty; when we share with those who are suffering, we do not give what belongs to us, but what belongs to them. This is not an act of pity, but the payment of a debt."
- Pope Gregory the Great (6Th Century)
"Am I my brothers keeper? That frequently asked question has never been answered in a way that is satisfactory to civilized society. Yes, I am my brothers keeper. I am under a moral obligation to him that is inspired, not by maudlin sentimentality, but by the higher duty I owe myself. It is when you have done your work honestly, when you have contributed your share to the common fund that you begin to live. Then, as Whitman said, you can take out your soul; and you can commune with yourself; you can take a comrade by the hand and you can look into his soul and in that holy communion you live. And if you don't know what that is, or if you are not at least at the edge of it, it is denied you even to look into the Promised Land."
- Eugene V. Debs, 1908
"Workers of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but your chains."
- Karl Marx
"Your silence will not protect you." - Audre Lorde
"One of the boys said I was looking well. Of course I am. There is going to be a racket and I am going to be in it! - Mother Jones, 1910
"The Labour Movement; the folks who bought you the weekend."
- From a bumber sticker, 1995
"Whatever you do will seem insignificant, but it is very important that you do it."
"The strongest bond of human sympathy, outside the family relation, should be one of uniting all working people of all nations, tongues, and kindreds." - Abraham Lincoln
"By bourgeoisie is meant the class of modern capitalists, owners of the means of social production and employers of wage labour. By proletariat, the class of modern wage labourers who, having no means of production of their own, are reduced to selling their labour power in order to live."
- Friedrich Engels, 1848
"We live in the richest country in the world. There's plenty and to spare for no man, woman, or child to be in want. And in addition to this our country was founded on what should have been a great, -true principle-the freedom, equality, and rights of each individual. Huh! And what has come of this start? There are corporations worth billions of dollars- and hundreds of thousands of people who don't get to eat."
- Carson McCullers, 1940
