“In History, stagnant waters, whether they be stagnant waters of custom or those of despotism, harbour no life; life is dependent on the ripples created by a few eccentric individuals. In homage to that life and vitality, the community has to brave certain perils and must countenance a measure of heresy. One must live dangerously if one wants to live at all.”
Herbert Read

“Simplicity is not a goal, but one arrives at simplicity in spite of oneself, as one approaches the real meaning of things.”
Herbert Read

“To realize that new world we must prefer the values of freedom and equality above all other values - above personal wealth, technical power and nationalism.”
Herbert Read
