Revolution is when the masses make the revolution. A peopleís revolution. But even when the revolution is made by others in the name of the masses, expressing what the masses want, it can be revolution. A peopleís revolution because it has the support of the masses and interprets the will of the masses.

Muammar Gaddafi

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

John F. Kennedy

I heard the voice of your revolution... As Shah of Iran as well as an Iranian citizen, I cannot but approve your revolution... Let all of us work together to establish real democracy in Iran ... I make a commitment to be with you and your revolution against corruption and injustice in Iran.

Muhammad Reza Pahlavi

In all our plans for the future, we are re-defining and we are re-stating our Socialism in terms of the scientific revolution. But that revolution cannot become a reality unless we are prepared to make far-reaching changes in economic and social attitudes which permeate our whole system of society. The Britain that is going to be forged in the white heat of this revolution will be no place for restrictive practices or for outdated methods on either side of industry.

Harold Wilson

"[My family] suffer so much. My mother was much older when I came out [of detention]. She had problems with her hearing and high blood pressure. But they still support me. When you make somebody disappear and you donít announce it to the family, what is this? You make people desperate and bring them close to death. If our cat or dog is lost, it makes us desperately want to know where it isóso for humans disappearing, you can barely imagine the pain. What kind of society is this? If a society cannot even support somebody like me, then people ask: Who is under protection, then? Thatís why there is such support for me. It is not because I am so beautiful or so charming. People feel, This guy is fighting for us."
