There are a lot of people out there doing cool work. I went to South Africa with Talib Kweli and the Roots for a couple of weeks. And even a lot of the groups that aren’t called ‘political’ or ‘revolutionary’ have a lot more to say than what you hear on the singles.

Tom Morello
In theater, you can be free. That’s how Lin-Manuel Miranda got to do the most revolutionary piece of theater with ‘Hamilton’: color-blind casting in roles in which they would never cast Latinos if it were a film or TV show. It just goes to show that Hollywood and cable are way behind.
John Leguizamo

Nick Cave
I think people are very stiff. Money makes people stiff, and we want it, and we have to pay the penalty. I never agreed with stiffness. I think people have an understanding of what their life is. I define success by being a realist and not humiliating people. I’m a revolutionary – but not in the political sense.
John Cassavetes
As well as being my doctor, Mohammad Jawad is so kind and caring and we have a father/daughter relationship. When I left hospital he found out about a revolutionary rehab centre in the south of France and spent his August bank holiday taking me there in 2008 to see it – such a happy time.

I took my daughters to see Plastic Ono Band at the Orpheum in L.A. in 2012. It was an amazing experience because she is such a revolutionary artist. Everybody was like, ‘Oh, it’s Yoko, it’s such a joke.’ But it’s no joke what she did, visually and musically. It’s incredible.
Pamela Adlon
I’m kind of floating out there as an artist. I’m in a safe place where I can play a girlfriend or a best friend or a mommy or a lawyer, but a huge part of me is unused. I’m classically trained, historically inclined and somewhat revolutionary by nature, so I’m frustrated as an artist.
Nicole Ari Parker
The successful revolutionary is a statesman, the unsuccessful one a criminal.

Arthur C. Clarke
We might not be back. I might be in jail. I might be anywhere. But when I leave, you’ll remember I said, with the last words on my lips, that I am a revolutionary. And you’re going to have to keep on saying that. You’re going to have to say that I am a proletariat; I am the people.
Fred Hampton
The whole life of an American is passed like a game of chance, a revolutionary crisis, or a battle.
Alexis de Tocqueville

George Packer
If, by demanding revolutionary change, I run the risk of accomplishing nothing on behalf of the public, then I’m not sure that’s a responsible course of action.

Joni Eareckson Tada
Martin Luther King, Jr. was a revolutionary, simple and plain.

Being French, to me, is first and foremost being a revolutionary.
Eric Cantona
The revolutionary breakthrough will come with rockets that are fully and rapidly reusable. We will never conquer Mars unless we do that. It’ll be too expensive. The American colonies would never have been pioneered if the ships that crossed the ocean hadn’t been reusable.
Elon Musk
All the political movements of our country that have hitherto played any important role in our modern history had been lacking in the ideal at the achievement of which they aimed. Revolutionary movement is no exception.
Bhagat Singh

Ash Sarkar
At the moment of greatest love, there is greatest fear, and at the moment of enormous repression, there is resistance, and therefore a chance at revolutionary change.

Sergei Lavrov
You know, I’m not a revolutionary.

‘Hamilton’ is revolutionary in terms of writing.
Chance The Rapper
Block by block, street by street, our city has the resources, the activism, and the ideas to meet these challenges if we act boldly and reshape what’s possible. After all, Boston was founded on a revolutionary promise: that things don’t have to be as they always have been.
Michelle Wu
Humanity has experienced many revolutionary changes over the course of history: revolutions in agriculture, in science, industrial production, as well as numerous political revolutions. But these have all been limited to the external aspects of our individual and collective lives.

Neil deGrasse Tyson
Growing up in the ’50s and being in the ’60s, in that revolutionary time space, I thought freedom was what I was looking for. Slowly but surely, it became clear that the last thing I was interested in was freedom. Because if you’re going to be free, you have to be free from something.
Anthony Braxton
I consider myself a political revolutionary humanist.

Johann Most
Without a revolutionary theory there cannot be a revolutionary movement.
Vladimir Lenin
When you do men’s wear, it’s less about thinking outside the box than about pushing the walls of the box outward. Men want to be evolutionary, not revolutionary.

Tom Reiss
Music television is all about the media-oriented version of what it is to be a rock star; it’s not about what Bob Dylan or Jimi Hendrix were about – which included great images, sure, but they had spiritual and political and revolutionary content, too.
Patti Smith
Warhol was proof that you can be revolutionary without being militant.
Maurizio Cattelan
I love my Kindle, but there are many books that I need to physically own. I think having the choice makes all the difference. Instant gratification – buying a book digitally and owning it sixty seconds later – really is a revolutionary act.
Chuck Hogan
There is in fact no such thing as art for art’s sake, art that stands above classes, art that is detached from or independent of politics. Proletarian literature and art are part of the whole proletarian revolutionary cause.
Mao Zedong
I couldn’t wait to get to the most powerful position, because I thought then I would be able to fix problems that only the leader can fix. But when I got there, I realized we needed revolutionary change.

Kim Jong-un
In the bubble that was dot-com 1.0 emerged Google, Amazon, and some of the most valuable companies on the planet. They were successful because they focused on their customer; they focused on revolutionary products.

John Cameron Mitchell
A revolutionary party is, in its essence, the party of its leader that carries out his ideology and cause, and the main thing in its building is to ensure the unitary character and inheritance of his ideology and leadership.
Kim Jong-un
