Words to rebel by, from Stephen Spender:
The cynicism of the old is…about things. It is the cynicism of those who accept that there is a machinery of society which is regardless of persons, ideals, feelings, and that you have to know how it works, move with its operations, and not against them. (The Year of the Young Rebels [NY: Random House, 1969], p. 132)
That is my rebellion, however quiet.
