Marx

Famous quotes containing the word marx:

    The moralist and the revolutionary are constantly undermining one another. Marx exploded a hundred tons of dynamite beneath the moralist position, and we are still living in the echo of that tremendous crash. But already, somewhere or other, the sappers are at work and fresh dynamite is being tamped in place to blow Marx at the moon. Then Marx, or somebody like him, will come back with yet more dynamite, and so the process continues, to an end we cannot foresee.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    Union ... brothers ... Marx ... capital ... bread and butter ... love. It was all Greek to me.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)

    The English have all the material requisites for the revolution. What they lack is the spirit of generalization and revolutionary ardour.
    —Karl Marx (1818–1883)
