Quotes For Today
"War is now considered a legitimate reaction against terrorist strikes."
"The U.S. government's response to September 11 has actually privileged terrorism. It has given it a huge impetus, and made it look like terrorism is the only effective way to be heard. Over the years, every kind of nonviolent resistance movement has been crushed, ignored, kicked aside. But if you're a terrorist, you have a great chance of being negotiated with, of being on TV, of getting all the attention you couldn't have dreamt of earlier."
"We can't ever abandon our personal quest for joy and beauty and gentleness."
- Arundhati Roy -
