“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

E.A. Bucchianeri

E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly,

James  Jones
“But he had always believed in fighting for the underdog, against the top dog. He had learned it, not from The Home, or The School, or The Church, but from that fourth and other great moulder of social conscience, The Movies. From all those movies that had begun to come out when Roosevelt went in.

He had been a kid back then, a kid who had not been on the bum yet, but he was raised up on all those movies that they made then, the ones that were between '32 and '37 and had not yet degenerated into commercial imitations of themselves like the Dead End Kid perpetual series that we have now. He had grown up with them, those movies like the every first Dead End, like Winternet, like Grapes Of Wrath, like Dust Be My Destiny, and those other movies starring John Garfield and the Lane girls, and the on-the-bum and prison pictures starring James Cagney and George Raft and Henry Fonda.”
James Jones, From Here to Eternity

“The Empire was crumbling every day. Trillions of people were free because of the Rebellion. Because she was a general running a battle group instead of a cell leader flying the Ghost on one mad assignment or another.
Still, she missed her old crew. Her family.
She wished they all could have been with her aboard the Lodestar.”
Alexander Freed, Alphabet Squadron

“হাংরি আন্দোলনের প্রথম বাংলা ইশতাহার
“কবিতা এখন জীবনের বৈপরীত্যে আত্মস্হ । সে আর জীবনের সামঞ্জস্যকারক নয়, অতিপ্রজ অন্ধ বল্মীক নয়, নিরলস যুক্তিগ্রন্হন নয় । এখন, এই সময়ে, অনিবার্য গভীরতার সন্তৃস্তদৃক ক্ষুধায় মানবিক প্রয়োজন এমনভাবে আবির্ভূত যে, জীবনের কোনো অর্থ বের করার প্রয়োজন শেষ । এখন প্রয়োজন অনর্থ বের করা, প্রয়োজন মেরু বিপর্যয়, প্রয়োজন নৈরাত্মসিদ্ধি । প্রাগুক্ত ক্ষুধা কেবল পৃথিবীবিরোধিতার নয়, তা মানবিক, দৈহিক এবং শারীরিক । এ ক্ষুধার একমাত্র লালনকর্তা কবিতা, কারণ কবিতা ব্যতীত আর কী আছে জীবনে ! মানুষ, ঈশ্বর, গণতন্ত্র এবং বিজ্ঞান পরাজিত হয়ে গেছে । কবিতা এখন একমাত্র আশ্রয় ।

কবিতা থাকা সত্বেও, অসহ্য মানবজীবনের সমস্ত প্রকার অসম্বদ্ধতা । অন্তরজগতের নিষ্কুন্ঠ বিদ্রোহে, অন্তরাত্মার নিদারুণ বিরক্তিতে, রক্তের প্রতিটি বিন্দুতে রচিত হয় কবিতা — উঃ, তবু মানবজীবন কেন এমন নিষ্প্রভ ! হয়তো, কবিতা এবং জীবনকে ভিন্নভাবে দেখতে যারা অভ্যস্ত, তাদের অপ্রয়োজনীয় অস্তিত্ব এই সংকটের নিয়ন্ত্রক ।

কবিতা বলে যাকে আমরা মনে করি, জীবনের থেকে মোহমুক্তির প্রতি ভয়ংকর আকর্ষণের ফলাফল তা কেবল নয় । ফর্মের খাঁচায় বিশ্বপ্রকৃতির ফাঁদ পেতে রাখাকে আর কবিতা বলা হয় না । এমন কি, প্রত্যাখ্যাত পৃথিবী থেকে পরিত্রাণের পথরূপেও কবিতার ব্যবহার এখন হাস্যকর । ইচ্ছে করে, সচেতনতায়, সম্পূর্ণরূপে আরণ্যকতার বর্বরতার মধ্যে মুক্ত কাব্যিক প্রজ্ঞার নিষ্ঠুরতার দাবির কাছে আত্মসমর্পণই কবিতা । সমস্ত প্রকার নিষিদ্ধতার মধ্যে তাই পাওয়া যাবে অন্তর্জগতের গুপ্তধন । কেবল, কেবল কবিতা থাকবে আত্মায় ।

Greg Rucka
“One did not need to believe in the Force to know right from wrong. Many who held no faith in the Force acted righteously, and he had known more than one sentient who had acted selfishly, even cruelly, and used belief to justify doing so.”
Greg Rucka, Guardians of the Whills

“Be a rebel, but a good-natured one. Live as you please and don't judge others.”

Frank Herbert
“All rebellions are ordinary and an ultimate bore. They are copied out of the same pattern, one much like another. The driving force is adrenaline addiction and the desire to gain personal power. All rebels are closet aristocrats.”
