The Hebrew race are my most inveterate enemies at home and abroad; they remain what they are and always were: the forgers of lies and the masterminds governing unrest, revolution, upheaval by spreading infamy with the help of their poisoned, caustic, satyrical spirit. If the world once wakes up it should mete out to them the punishment in store for them, which they deserve.Kaiser Wilhelm II
A reform is a correction of abuses; a revolution is a transfer of power.edward bulwer-lytton

The function of leadership in the guerrilla, the function of Andreas Baader in the RAF is orientation: not just to distinguish the main points from the minor ones in each situation but also to remain with the entire political context in all situations; to never lose sight, among technical and logistic details and problems, of the aim, which is the revolution.ulrike meinhof

One would have thought that it was even more necessary to limit population than property; and that the limit should be fixed by calculating the chances of mortality in the children, and of sterility in married persons.

A great revolution is never the fault of the people, but of the government.Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

After sketching his program for the scientific revolution that he foresaw, Bacon ends his account with a prayer: "Humbly we pray that this mind may be steadfast in us, and that through these our hands, and the hands of others to whom thou shalt give the same spirit, thou wilt vouchsafe to endow the human family with new mercies". That is still a good prayer for all of us as we begin the twenty-first century.freeman dyson

I don't care what becomes of Russia. To hell with it … All this is only the road to a World revolution.
From 1789 to late in 1791 the French revolution was an orderly process, and from the summer of 1794 the Republic was an orderly and victorious state. The Terror was not the work of the whole country, but of the town mob which owed its existence and its savagery to the misrule, and social injustice of the ancient regime...More lives were wasted by the British generals alone on the opening day of what is known as the Somme offensive of July, 1916 than in the whole French revolution from start to finish.
"You say you want a revolution?"
According to my judgement, the French revolution and the doings of Napoleon opened the eyes of the world . The nations knew nothing before and the people thought that kings were gods upon the earth and that they were bound to say that whatever they did as well done.
