Festival Celebrated

Famous quotes containing the words celebrated and/or festival:

    There is a constant in the average American imagination and taste, for which the past must be preserved and celebrated in full-scale authentic copy; a philosophy of immortality as duplication. It dominates the relation with the self, with the past, not infrequently with the present, always with History and, even, with the European tradition.
    Umberto Eco (b. 1932)

    The surest guide to the correctness of the path that women take is joy in the struggle. Revolution is the festival of the oppressed.
