Famous quotes containing the word people:

    People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth.
    Raoul Vaneigem (b. 1934)
