Famous quotes containing the word rebel:

    The young always have the same problem—how to rebel and conform at the same time. They have now solved this by defying their parents and copying one another.
    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)

    The rebel can never find peace. He knows what is good and, despite himself, does evil. The value which supports him is never given to him once and for all—he must fight to uphold it, unceasingly.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    I can’t bear art that you can walk round and admire. A book should be either a bandit or a rebel or a man in the crowd.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
