John Keats

Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on.”
John Keats, The Complete Poems

Michel Foucault
“The work of an intellectual is not to mould the political will of others; it is, through the analyses that he does in his own field, to re-examine evidence and assumptions, to shake up habitual ways of working and thinking, to dissipate conventional familiarities, to re-evaluate rules and institutions and to participate in the formation of a political will (where he has his role as citizen to play).”
Michel Foucault

“All despotism is bad; but the worst is that which works with the machinery of freedom.”
Junius, Junius: including letters by the same writer under other signatures : To which are added his confidential correspondence with Mr. Wilkes : and his private letters to Mr. H. S. Woodfall

Thomas Carlyle
“The block of granite which was an obstacle in the pathway of the weak becomes a stepping-stone in the pathway of the strong.”
Thomas Carlyle

Arthur Rimbaud
“I turned silences and nights into words. What was unutterable, I wrote down. I made the whirling world stand still.”
Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell and The Drunken Boat
