"Despising the bourgeoisie, and yet belonging to it, they add to its strength and glory.... The lives of these infinitely numerous persons makes no claim to the tragic; but they live under an evil star in a quite considerable affliction; and in this hell their talents ripen and bear fruit.... The few who break free seek their reward in the unconditioned and go down in splendor. They wear the thorn crown and their number is small." - Hermann Hesse.
"I will return and I will be millions." - Tupac Katari.
