Councils

Famous quotes containing the word councils:

    Surrealism ... is the forbidden flame of the proletariat embracing the insurrectional dawn—enabling us to rediscover at last the revolutionary moment: the radiance of the workers’ councils as a life profoundly adored by those we love.
    —“Manifesto of the Arab Surrealist Movement” (1975)

    How many councils and decrees
    Have perished in the simple prayer
    That gave obedience to the knee;
    Austin Clarke (1896–1974)

    In bridge clubs and in councils of state, the passions are the same.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
