A revolution is not a dinner party.
The Little Red Book, section 2 (1927)
Revolution is not a dinner party, nor an essay, nor a painting, nor a piece of embroidery; it cannot be advanced softly, gradually, carefully, considerately, respectfully, politely, plainly, and modestly. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.Mao Tse-tung
Politics is war without bloodshed while war is politics with bloodshed.Mao Tse-tung
Every Communist must grasp the truth: Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.Mao Tse-tung
The east wind prevails over the west wind.Mao Tse-tung
People who try to commit suicide don't attempt to save them! China is such a populous nation, it is not as if we cannot do without a few people.Mao Tse-tung
