Rebels

Famous quotes containing the word rebels:

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

    He that rebels against reason is a real rebel, but he that in defence of reason rebels against tyranny has a better title to “Defender of the Faith,” than George the Third.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)

    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)
