Famous quotes containing the words movement, popular and/or republican:

    No great movement designed to change the world can bear to be laughed at or belittled. Mockery is a rust that corrodes all it touches.
    Milan Kundera (b. 1929)

    The poet will prevail to be popular in spite of his faults, and in spite of his beauties too. He will hit the nail on the head, and we shall not know the shape of his hammer. He makes us free of his hearth and heart, which is greater than to offer one the freedom of a city.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I go by the great republican principle, that the people will have the virtue and intelligence to select men of virtue and wisdom [to the offices of government].
    James Madison (1751–1836)
