Octavio Paz

Revolt is the violence of an entire people; rebellion the unruliness of an individual or an uprising by a minority; both are spontaneous and blind. Revolution is both planned and spontaneous, a science and an art.More Octavio Paz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Love is not a desire for beauty; it is a yearning for completion.More Octavio Paz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Power immobilizes; it freezes with a single gesture-grandiose, terrible, theatrical, or finally, simply monotonous-the variety which is life.More Octavio Paz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To love is to undress our names.More Octavio Paz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What sets worlds in motion is the interplay of differences, their attractions and repulsions. Life is plurality, death is uniformity. By suppressing differences and pecularities, by eliminating different civilizations and cultures, progress weakens life and favors death. The ideal of a single civilization for everyone, implicit in the cult of progress and technique, impoverishes and mutilates us. Every view of the world that becomes extinct, every culture that disappears, diminishes a possibility of lifeMore Octavio Paz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
