Famous quotes containing the words revolution and/or continuous:

    A revolution does not last more than fifteen years, the period which coincides with the flourishing of a generation.
    José Ortega Y Gasset (1883–1955)

    I can never get people to understand that poetry is the expression of excited passion, and that there is no such thing as a life of passion any more than a continuous earthquake, or an eternal fever. Besides, who would ever shave themselves in such a state?
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
