“Look at what realists have done for us. They have led us to war and climate change, poverty on an unimaginable scale, and wholesale ecological destruction. Half of humanity goes to bed hungry because of all the realistic leaders in the world. I tell people who call me ‘unrealistic’ to show me what their realism has done. Realism is an outdated, overplayed and wholly exaggerated concept.”

Satish Kumar, editor of the amazing Resurgence Magazine.

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the conditions that surround him. The unreasonable man adapts surrounding conditions to himself. Thus, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” —George Bernard Shaw (you know this one, most likely, but it pairs so well with the one above!)

“You can not be creative in a system that is very unjust, like the system we live in, unless you are a dissident.”

—Nawal el Saadawi (who my coconut cream pyramids are named for!)
