Masses Quotes

Image Quotes about Masses




Cyril Connolly - The English masses are lovable: they are kind, decent, tolerant, practical and not stupid. The tragedy is that they are too many of them, and that they are aimless, having outgrown the servile functions for which they were encouraged to multiply. One day these huge crowds will have to seize power because there will be nothing else for them to do, and yet they neither demand power nor are ready to make use of it; they will learn only to be bored in a new way.

Giuseppe Mazzini - Insurrection: Insurrection as soon as circumstances allow: insurrection, strenuous, ubiquitous: the insurrection of the masses: the holy war of the oppressed: the republic to make republicans: the people in action to initiate progress. Let the insurrection announce with its awful voice the decrees of God: let it clear and level the ground on which its own immortal structure shall be raised. Let it, like the Nile, flood all the country that it is destined to make fertile.

Jean Anouilh  - Listen, my friend, there are two races of beings. The masses teeming and happy /common clay, if you like /eating, breeding, working, counting their pennies; people who just live; ordinary people; people you can't imagine dead. And then there are the others /the noble ones, the heroes. The ones you can quite well imagine lying shot, pale and tragic; one minute triumphant with a guard of honor, and the next being marched away between two gendarmes.

Jorge Castaneda  - [The great masses of the poor in one of the most unequal regions of the world provide a ready audience for Chavez and his populist message. His shadow will thus loom larger than any other over the 10 presidential elections scheduled around the region between now and the end of 2006.] There are movements in Latin America that look to him either as a model or as a source of financing or both, ... And there he can exert an enormous amount of influence.
