[But The Boy Protected Yorda From The Shadows-that-walk-alone. He Took Her Hand, Defended Her, Swung His Thin Arm, And Fought With His Tiny Frame, Driving Them Back. If The Shades Dragged Her Into Their Realm, She Would Once Again Become A Prisoner, And The Boy Would Turn To Stone, A Sad Adornment In The Castle. Yorda Knew This. But The Boy Did Not--even As He Did Not Know That Yorda Was The Property Of The Queen Of The Castle--and He Protected Her.]

Quotes About San Francisco Streets

"Yes, Marcos is gay. Marcos is gay in San Francisco, black in South Africa, an Asian in Europe, a Chicano in San Ysidro, an anarchist in Spain, a Palestinian in Israel, a Mayan Indian in the streets of San Cristobal, a Jew in Germany, a Gypsy in Poland, a Mohawk in Quebec, a pacifist in Bosnia, a single woman on the Metro at 10pm, a peasant without land, a gang member in the slums, an unemployed worker, an unhappy student and, of course, a Zapatista in the mountains. Marcos is all the exploited, marginalised, oppressed minorities resisting and saying `Enough. He is every minority who is now beginning to speak and every majority that must shut up and listen. He is every untolerated group searching for a way to speak. Everything that makes power and the good consciences of those in power uncomfortable -- this is Marcos." - Author: Subcomandante Marcos

Quotes About Printing Press

"If history teaches us anything, its that governments are always right, and they always do whats in the best interest of the people, even at the expense of their own political agenda. In every situation, the answer is always more government and more regulation. If there are six billion people in the world, then all six billion should work for the government. More, if we could. And there should be at least twice as many laws as there are people in the world. And with more laws means more lawyers, so its a double benefit. Its a win-win for both the government and the citizens, which of course there wont be because in this utopian dream there are no citizens, there is only the government. The best part is the taxes will be super high, but theyre paid in full by the printing presses of the Geodesic Dome Society. Full benefits, zero unemployment, no chance of being fired, and a world so efficient it would make Rube Goldberg look like Fred Taylor or Henry Ford." - Author: Jarod Kintz
