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

“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.”

“A great revolution is never the fault of the people, but of the government.”
―Johan Wolfgang von Goethe

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