Uprising

Famous quotes containing the word uprising:

    An uprising would punish only the country, and that is out of the question. But there is yet another approach, the most effective form of resistance: contemptuous compliance.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    Even the most subjected person has moments of rage and resentment so intense that they respond, they act against. There is an inner uprising that leads to rebellion, however short- lived. It may be only momentary but it takes place. That space within oneself where resistance is possible remains.
    bell hooks (b. c. 1955)

    Whoever thinks of stopping the uprising before it achieves its goals, I will give him ten bullets in the chest.
    Yasir Arafat (b. 1929)
