Sacred cows make the tastiest hamburger.
Hoffman quotes
The first duty of a revolutionist is to get away with it. The second duty is to eat breakfast. I ain't going.
Hoffman

Hoffman Abbie quotes
There is absolutely no greater high than challenging the power structure as a nobody, giving it your all, and winning. I think I've learned that lesson twice now. The essence of successful revolution, be it for an individual, a community of individuals, or a nation, depends on accepting that challenge.
Hoffman Abbie

Abbie Hoffman quotes
In this state, dig it, you get twenty years for sale of dope to a minor. You only get five to ten for manslaughter. So like, the thing is, if you're selling to a kid and cops come, shoot the kid real quick!
Abbie Hoffman
