Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant—there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing—and keeping the unknown always beyond you…

Georgia O'Keeffe


La suborganización de una sociedad no debe confundirse con el respecto a la libertad.

Jose Maria Arizmendiarrieta

El Hombre Cooperativo


The endurance and strength of a movement is determined by the source of indignation from which it arises.

Bert Cochran

Labor and Communism


The best education is action and the best action is the struggle for justice.

Myles Horton


It interests me more to have a human relationship with you than a musical relationship. I want to see if I can express myself in words, in sounds that have to do with a human relationship. At the same time, I would like to be able to speak of the relationship between two talents, between two doings. For me, the human relationship is much more beautiful, because it allows you to gain the freedom that you desire, for yourself and for the other.

Ornette Coleman

Did I Miss Anything?

Nothing...Take as many days off as you like:
any activities we undertake as a class
I assure you will not matter either to you or me
and are without purpose.

Everything. Contained in this classroom
is a microcosm of human experience
assembled for you to query and examine and ponder
This is not the only place such an opportunity has been gathered

but it was one place

Tom Wayman

Did I Miss Anything? from Poetry 180


I don't know what it is
But I do know it don't sit right with me.
Don't you even once try to tell me it's supposed to be.

James McMurtry

Soda and Salt


...qualunque cosa un borghese faccia, sbaglia. A parte gli errori storici, infatti, come l’idea di Nazione, l’idea di Dio, l’idea di Chiesa confessionale eccetera, anche se la ricerca del borghese è sincera, intima e nobile, tuttavia è sempre sbagliata. Ma questa condanna della borghesia, mentre prima era precisa, era ovvia, qui rimane «sospesa», perché la borghesia in realtà sta cambiando. L’indignazione e la rabbia contro la borghesia classica, come la si è sempre intesa, non ha più ragione di essere dal momento in cui la borghesia sta cambiando rivoluzionariamente se stessa, cioè sta identificando tutto l’uomo al piccolo borghese. Ormai è tutta l’umanità che sta diventando piccolo borghese: e allora nascono delle nuove domande a cui è il borghese stesso che deve rispondere, e non più l’operaio oppure chi è all’opposizione. Ora a queste domande non possiamo rispondere né noi borghesi che siamo all’opposizione, né il borghese «naturale» stesso.

Pier Paolo Pasolini

Incontro con Pier Paolo Pasolini di Lino Peroni


Life only becomes happiness, is only endowed with freedom and meaning when someone exists as a whole world that has never been repeated in all eternity. Only then can they experience the joy of freedom and kindness, finding in others what they have already found in themselves.

Vasily Grossman

Life and Fate


Denn die einen sind im Dunkeln
Und die andern sind im Licht.
Und man siehet die im Lichte.
Die im Dunkeln sieht man nicht

Bertolt Brecht
