With the release of How to Create a Revolution: A Step-By-Step Guide to History’s Social Influencers, I thought it would be fun to give you a little revolutionary motivation on this beautiful Tuesday afternoon. Here are some of the quotes from the book. Enjoy!
“The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.”
“All I was doing was trying to get home from work.”
“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
“It’s really not so uncomfortable. Why, I think I easily would be able to hold out for a week. I was a little worried about the roof at first, but after I watched it for hours and it didn’t get any worse, I’ve sort of eased off thinking about it. But I don’t sit under the side that’s caved in the worst. You really don’t get to think too much about yourself in something like this. It’s not necessarily that the cause engulfs your whole personality. No, it’s not that. It’s more like there are so many things going on you just don’t have time to think of personal comforts.”
—Jack Weinberg, Oakland Tribune, October 2, 1964.
“The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire.”
“War, children, it’s just a shot away, It’s just a shot away.”
-The Rolling Stones
“This revolution, the information revolution, is a revolution of free energy as well, but of another kind: free intellectual energy. It’s very crude today, yet our Macintosh computer takes less power than a 100-watt bulb to run it and it can save you hours a day. What will it be able to do ten or 20 years from now, or 50 years from now?”
“Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face; and generate solutions accessible to everyone. To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.”
-Declaration of the Occupation, Occupy Wall Street-New York City General Assembly; www.nycga.net
“Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.”
“In a revolution, as in a novel, the most difficult part to invent is the end.”
-Alexis de Tocqueville

These questions are what prompted my research and a 22 city road trip throughout the US in search for social good. Hundreds of stories collected and research analyzed.
