Unless they were deliberately unloaded and all contents examined for utility occasionally, one could find oneself transporting around in one's daily life three lipstick cases with just a crumb of lipstick left, an old eyebrow pencil sharpener without a blade, pieces of defunct watch, odd earrings, handkerchiefs (three crumpled, one uncrumpled), two grubby powder puffs, bent hairpins, patterns of ribbon to be matched, a cigarette lighter without fuel (and two with fuel), a spark plug, some papers of Bex and a sprinkling of loose white aspirin, eleven train tickets (the return half of which had not been given up), four tram tickets, cinema and theatre stubs, seven pence three farthings in loose change and the mandatory throat lozenge stuck to the lining. At least, those had been the extra contents of Phyrne's bag the last time Dot had turned it out."

If you understand them truly now, they still are. You are not taught - and it is a disgrace that you aren't - that these men and women were radicals for liberty; that they had a vision of equality that was a slap in the face of what the rest of their world understood to be the unchanging, God-given order of nations; and that they were willing to die to make that desperate vision into a reality for people like us, whom they would never live to see."
Author: Naomi Wolf

Author: Patti Smith

Author: Philip K. Dick

The more I think of that, the more deeply true it seems to be. It follows that one must range oneself actively against everything that diminishes man, and involve oneself in all struggles which tend to liberate and enlarge him. This categorical imperative is by no way lessened by the fact that such an involvement is inevitably soiled by error: it is a worse error merely to live for oneself, caught within traditions which are soiled by inhumanity."
Author: Victor Serge
48. "I recommend that the Statue of Liberty be supplemented by a Statue of Responsibility on the west coast."
Author: Viktor E. Frankl
49. "Ora abbandonerò tutto; ora mollerò gli ormeggi. Ora libererò il desiderio frenato e represso perché finlamente si possa spendere, si possa consumare. Galopperemo insieme sopra le colline deserte dove la rondine inzuppa le ali nelle pozzanghere scure e le colonne si ergono intere. Nell'onda che sbatte sulla spiaggia, nell'onda che getta la sua bianca spuma ai più remoti angoli della terra, io getto le mie violette, la mia offerta a Percival."
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "A dog is like a liberal. He wants to please everybody. A cat really doesn't need to know that everybody loves him."
Author: William Kunstler
