Famous quotes containing the words emma goldman and/or goldman:

    Anarchism is the only philosophy which brings man the consciousness of himself; which maintains that God, the State, and society are non-existent, that their promises are null and void, since they can be fulfilled only through man’s subordination.... The individual is the heart of society, conserving the essence of social life; society is the lungs which are distributing the element to keep the life essence—that, is, the individual—pure and strong.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    —Emma Goldman (1869–1940)
