Arundhati Roy

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

Flags are bits of coloured cloth that governments use to shrink wrap people's brains and then as ceremonial shrouds to bury the dead.

Never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. Respect strength, never power.

Either way, change will come. It could be bloody, or it could be beautiful. It depends on us.

If you don't love us, you hate us. If you're not Good you're Evil. If you're not with us, you're with the terrorists.

Above all, watch. Try and understand. Never look away. And never, never, forget.
