Famous quotes containing the word revolution:

    I want the necessity of supplying my own wants. All this costly culture of yours is not necessary. Greatness does not need it. Yonder peasant, who sits neglected, carries a whole revolution of man and nature in his head, which shall be a sacred history to some future ages.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
