Rebels

Famous quotes containing the word rebels:

    As nature requires whirlwinds and cyclones to release its excessive force in a violent revolt against its own existence, so the spirit requires a demonic human being from time to time whose excessive strength rebels against the community of thought and the monotony of morality ... only by looking at those beyond its limits does humanity come to know its own utmost limits.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    Now boys, remember you are the Twenty-third, and give them hell. In these woods the Rebels don’t know but we are ten thousand; and if we fight, and when we charge yell, we are as good as ten thousand, by God.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Kings will be tyrants from policy, when subjects are rebels from principle.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)
