Famous quotes containing the word movement:

    Women, because of their colonial relationship to men, have to fight for their own independence. This fight for our own independence will lead to the growth and development of the revolutionary movement in this country. Only the independent woman can be truly effective in the larger revolutionary struggle.

    The writer may very well serve a movement of history as its mouthpiece, but he cannot of course create it.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
