PROUT’s Quotes To Live By
"You're obliged to pretend respect for people and
institutions you think absurd. You live attatched in a
cowardly fashion to moral and social conventions you
despise, condemn, and know lack all foundation. It is that
permanent contradiction between your ideas and desires and
all the dead formalities and vain pretences of your
civilisation which makes you sad, troubled and unbalanced."
- Octave Mirbeau, the Torture Garden
Quoted in the cover of the Manic Street Preachers music album 'the Holy Bible'.
"The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism: ownership of government by an individual, by a group or any controlling private power."
- Franklin Roosevelt
