“One revolution is like one cocktail, it just gets you organized for the next.” ―Will Rogers


The whirling dervish going round on the inside track is thinking about breaking the record of revolutions per minute held by a mad holy roller on the outside track. He has another think coming.

“Every revolution was first a thought in one man’s mind.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The whirling dervish thinks about the hula-hooper’s record of 78 revolutions a minute, snatched away by a twirling ballroom dancer.

“If we glance at the most important revolutions in history, we see at once that the greatest number of these originated in the periodical revolutions of the human mind.”

Wilhelm Humboldt

His thoughts turn to the record of 45 revolutions per minute, counted by the revolving door of a once and future noble house. The flipped-out 45th tenant pushed hard to the right as the wings of the door swept around the other way, flip-flip-flipping him out.

“A great revolution is never the fault of the people, but of the government.”

Johan Wolfgang von Goethe

Coming up on the outside, for the record of 33 and 1/3 revolutions per minute, in the mind of the whirling dervish, is a mad holy- Well, any spinner of yarns who’s mad as hell about the way things stand, and isn’t about to take it sitting down.

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

Albert Camus
