The 14th of July was a real victory for the middle classes, to be sure, but it was much more than that. It came to be a symbol of liberty itself. For if that day brought a new class to a position of power, so, too, it implied the final collapse of the Ancien Regime to the degree that the regime had come to be represented in people’s minds by the image of the Bastille. In this sense it appeared to bring great hope to oppressed people everywhere.

The moon likes secrets. And secret things. She lets mysteries bleed into her shadows and leaves us to ask whether they originated from otherworlds, or from our own imaginations.

Love to throw yourself on the earth and kiss it. Kiss the earth and love it with an unceasing, consuming love. Love all people, love eveything. Seek that rapture and ecstasy.

Lenin’s speech at the unveling of a memorial to Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in Voskresenskaya Square on November 7, 1918:

We are unveiling a memorial to Marx and Engels, the leaders of the world workers’ revolution.
Humanity has for ages suffered and languished under the oppression of a tiny handful of exploiters who maltreated millions of labourers. But whereas the exploiters of an earlier period, the landowners, robbed and maltreated the peasant serfs, who were disunited, scattered and ignorant, the exploiters of the new period, the capitalists, came face to face with the vanguard of the downtrodden people, the urban, factory, industrial workers. They were united by the factory, they were enlightened by urban life, they were steeled by the common strike struggle and by revolutionary action.
