First time I read this, I found it completely forgettable. I did npt even realise there was going to be a rest of the series, or if I did, I filed it in the oubliette in my wind.

W.B. Yeats
“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.”
W.B. Yeats, The Collected Poems

Ulrike Marie Meinhof
“But that is who we are, that is where we come from. We are the offspring of metropolitan annihilation and destruction, of the war of all against all, of the conflict of each individual with every other individual, of a system governed by fear, of the compulsion to produce, of the profit of one to the detriment of others, of the division of people into men and women, young and old, sick and healthy, foreigners and Germans, and of the struggle for prestige. Where do we come from? From isolation in individual row-houses, from the suburban concrete cities, from prison cells, from the asylums and special units, from media brainwashing, from consumerism, from corporal punishment, from the ideology of nonviolence, from depression, from illness, from degradation, from humiliation, from the debasement of human beings, from all the people exploited by imperialism.”

“Protest is when I say I don't like this. Resistance is when I put an end to what I don't like. Protest is when I say I refuse to go along with this anymore. Resistance is when I make sure everybody else stops going along too.”
Ulrike Marie Meinhof

Hélder Câmara
“When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist.”
Hélder Câmara, Dom Helder Camara: Essential Writings

Albert Einstein
“If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.”
Albert Einstein
