Famous quotes containing the word rebellion:

    Men must be capable of imagining and executing and insisting on social change if they are to reform or even maintain civilization, and capable too of furnishing the rebellion which is sometimes necessary if society is not to perish of immobility.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)
