Thoughts for Thursday: Rebellion

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is Rebellion!

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."--Edmund Burke

"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion."--Albert Camus

"Rebellion against tyrants is obedience to God."--Benjamin Franklin

"Dominance. Control. These things the unjust seek most of all. And so it is the duty of the just to defy dominance and challenge control."--Robert Fanney

"...and we'll see what happens when we say Yes while this rigor mortis world screams No."--Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies

"Safe to do what?" he says in a gentler tone. "Starve? Work like slaves? Send their kids to the Reaping? You haven't hurt people--you've given them an opportunity. They just have to be brave enough to take it."--Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire
