Famous quotes containing the word movements:

    All great movements are popular movements. They are the volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into activity by the ruthless Goddess of Distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people.
    Adolf Hitler (1889–1945)
