Bertolt Brecht

In the dark times
Will there also be singing?
Yes, there will also be singing.
About the dark times.”
Bertolt Brecht

Douglas Adams
“The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Mary Beard
“In the Roman world, Ovid’s Metamorphoses – that extraordinary mythological epic about people changing shape (and probably the most influential work of literature on Western art after the Bible) – repeatedly returns to the idea of the silencing of women in the process of their transformation.”
Mary Beard, Women & Power: A Manifesto

Dawn Powell
“Satire is people as they are; romanticism, people as they would like to be; realism, people as they seem with their insides left out.”
Dawn Powell

“If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair.”
Shirley Chisholm
