The word of the oldest of the old of our peoples didn't stop. It spoke the truth, saying that our feet couldn't walk alone, that our history of pain and shame was repeated and multiplied in the flesh and blood of the brothers and sisters of other lands and skies. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
In our dreams we have seen another world, an honest world, a world decidedly more fair than the one in which we now live. We saw that in this world there was no need for armies; peace, justice and liberty were so common that no one talked about them as far-off concepts, but as things such as bread, birds, air, water, like book and voice. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
In the end, the women can be very rebellious, and very capable and all of that, but if she depends on a man economically, she has few possibilities. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
In the cabaret of globalization, the state shows itself as a table dancer that strips off everything until it is left with only the minimum indispensable garments: the repressive force. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
Toward the end of the Cold War, capitalism created a military horror: the neutron bomb, a weapon that destroys life while leaving buildings intact. During the Fourth World War, however, a new wonder has been discovered: the financial bomb. Unlike those dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, this new bomb not only destroys the polis (here, the nation), imposing death, terror, and misery on those who live there, but also transforms its target into just another piece in the puzzle of economic globalization. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
In previous armies, soldiers used their time to clean their weapons and stock up on ammunition. Our weapons are words, and we may need our arsenal at any moment. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
There once was a brown horse that was brown like a bean, and he lived in the home of a very poor farmer. And the poor farmer had a very poor wife, and they had a very thin chicken and a lame little pig. And so, one day the very poor farmer s wife said: We have nothing more to eat because we are very poor, so we must eat the very thin chicken. So they killed the very thin chicken and made a thin soup and ate it. And so, for a while, they were fine; but the hunger returned and the very poor farmer told his very poor wife: We have nothing more to eat because we are so poor, so we must eat the lame little pig. And so the lame little pig s turn came and they killed it and they made a lame soup and ate it. And then it was the bean-brown horse s turn. But the bean-brown horse did not wait for the story to end; it just ran away and went to another story.

Is that the end of the story? I asked Durito, unable to hide my bewilderment. Of course not. Didn't you hear me say that the bean-brown horse fled to another story? he said as he prepared to leave. And so? I ask exasperated. And so nothing you have to look for the bean-brown horse in another story! he said, adjusting his hat. But, Durito! I said, protesting uselessly. Not one more word! You tell the story like it is ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
The photographer discovers himself/herself being photographed and we can guess he is uncomfortable. Unsuccessfully he/she tries to recompose his posture and to look like a photographer taking photos. But no, he is and continues to be a spectator. The momentous fact of being photographed leads him to becoming an actor. And, as always, actors must assume a role, which is only an elegant way of avoiding to say they must choose sides, choose a faction, take an option. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
In reality, the pioneers of this transformation of the indigenous Zapatista woman are a merit of the women insurgents. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
The prophecy is here: When the storm calms, when rain and fire again leave the country in peace, the world will no longer be the world, but something better. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
Always, since our birth, we've insisted on another way of doing politics. Now, we had the chance to do it without arms, but without stopping being Zapatistas; that's why we keep the masks on. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
In that first blow to the deaf walls of those who have everything, the blood of our people, our blood, ran generously to wash away injustice. To live, we die. Our dead once again walked the way of truth. Our hope was fertilized with mud and blood. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
This wind will come from the mountains. It is already being born under the trees and is conspiring for a new world, so new that it is barely an intuition in the collective heart that inspired it... ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
Why do we need to be pardoned? What are we to be pardoned for? For not dying of hunger? For not accepting humbly the historic burden of disdain and abandonment? For having risen up in arms after we found all other paths closed? For not heeding the Chiapas penal code, one of the most absurd and repressive in history? For showing the rest of the country and the whole world that human dignity still exists even among the world's poorest peoples? For having made careful preparations before we began our uprising? For bringing guns to battle instead of bows and arrows? For being Mexicans? For being mainly indigenous? For calling on the Mexican people to fight by whatever means possible for what belongs to them? For fighting for liberty, democracy and justice? For not following the example of previous guerrilla armies? For refusing to surrender? For refusing to sell ourselves out? Who should we ask for pardon, and who can grant it? Those who for many years glutted themselves at a table of plenty while we sat with death so often, we finally stopped fearing it? Those who filled our pockets and our souls with empty promises and words? Or should we ask pardon from the dead, our dead, who died "natural" deaths of "natural causes" like measles, whooping cough, break-bone fever, cholera, typhus, mononucleosis, tetanus, pneumonia, malaria and other lovely gastrointestinal and pulmonary diseases? Our dead, so very dead, so democratically dead from sorrow because no one did anything, because t ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
We don't want to impose our solutions by force, we want to create a democratic space. We don't see armed struggle in the classic sense of previous guerrilla wars, that is as the only way and the only all-powerful truth around which everything is organized. In a war, the decisive thing is not the military confrontation but the politics at stake in the confrontation. We didn't go to war to kill or be killed. We went to war in order to be heard. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
As to whether Marcos is gay: Marcos is gay in San Francisco, black in South Africa, an Asian in Europe, a Chicano in San Ysidro, an anarchist in Spain, a Palestinian in Israel, a Mayan Indian in the streets of San Cristobal, ... a Jew in Germany, a Gypsy in Poland, a Mohawk in Quebec, a pacifist in Bosnia, a single woman on the Metro at 10pm, a peasant without land, a gang member in the slums, an unemployed worker, an unhappy student and, of course, a Zapatista in the mountains. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
We think, fundamentally, that the future story of Latin America, not only of Mexico but for all of Latin America, will be constructed from the bottom - that the rest of what's happening, in any case, are steps. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
We were born between blood and gunpowder; and between blood and gunpowder we were raised. Every so often the powerful from other lands came to rob us of tomorrow. For this reason it was written in a war song that unites us: "If a foreigner with his step ever dares to profane your land, think, Oh beloved motherland, that heaven gave you a soldier in each son." For this reason we fought. With flags and different languages the foreigner came to conquer us. He came and he went. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
Then the lion stares at it. It stares at its prey. Like this.' (Old Antonio frowns and fastens his black eyes on me.) 'The poor little animal that is going to die just looks. It looks at the lion, who is staring at him. The little animal no longer sees itself, it sees what the lion sees, it looks at the little animal image in the lion's stare, it sees that the lion sees it as small and weak. The little animal never thought before about whether it was small and weak. It was just an animal, neither big nor small, neither strong nor weak. But now it looks at what the lion is seeing, it looks at fear. And by looking at what the lion is seeing, the little animal convinces itself that it is small and weak. And, by looking at the fear that the lion sees, it feels afraid. And now the little animal does not look at anything. Its bones go numb, just like when water gets hold of us at night in the cold. And then the little animal just surrenders, it lets itself go and the lion gets it. That is how the lion kills. It kills by staring. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
All cultures forged by nations - the noble indigenous past of America, the brilliant civilization of Europe, the wise history of Asian nations, and the ancestral wealth of Africa and Oceania - are corroded by the American way of life. In this way, neoliberalism imposes the destruction of nations and groups of nations in order to reconstruct them according to a single model. This is a planetary war, of the worst and cruelest kind, waged against humanity. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
We are an army of dreamers, and that's why we're invincible. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
But I'll tell you more about that later ... or maybe I won't, because some wounds just don't heal even if you talk them out. On the contrary, the more you dress them up in words, the more they bleed. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
Question the images. Take them by the hand and don't let the sweet distancing they offer you vanquish you; do away with the distance's comfort or the soft indifference you derive from concentrating on the quality of the framing, the use of light and shadows, the successful composition. Force these images to bring you to the Mexican Southeast, to history, to the struggle, to this taking sides, to choose a faction. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
Love is like a teacup that every day falls to the ground and breaks to pieces. In the morning the pieces are gathered and with a little moisture and a little warmth, the pieces are glued together, and again there is a little teacup. He who is in love spends life fearing that the terrible day will come when the teacup is so broken that it can no longer mended. ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
I shit on all the revolutionary vanguards of this planet ~ Subcomandante Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
Well, I was born in El Paso, Texas, it was in the nearest hospital to the family farm. ~ Sam Donaldson
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Sam Donaldson
The short answer: no. The longer answer: I don't think so? ~ Amal El-Mohtar
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Amal El-Mohtar
Like a tenacious ivy, your presence clings onto the drab wall of my existence.
Cling harder onto me love, like a blood sucking bed-bug who is never satiated. ~ Malak El Halabi
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Malak El Halabi
Lady Ponsonby was right. The forbidden fruit isn't shaped like an apple. It's shaped like a banana. ~ Michelle Marcos
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Michelle Marcos
I wanted a perfect man like the one in my imagination and a perfect love and I wasn't going to abandon either of these goals, however long it meant I had to be alone. 'All or nothing' was my abiding principle and I'd never accept half measures. ~ Nawal El Saadawi
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Nawal El Saadawi
Perhaps it is time for humanity to realize that noble ends can only be attained through ethical means. ~ Sahar El-Nadi
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Sahar El-Nadi
The truth can sometimes be slow to reveal itself. The sun sets every night but returns the next day. El tiempo es un gran curador, time is a great healer. Is it not said that he is a great master who solves many things? ~ Hannah Fielding
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Hannah Fielding
What, whom we put our hope in determines our stability! EL ~ Evinda Lepins
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Evinda Lepins
There is a Quichua riddle: El que me nombra, me rompe. Whatever names me, breaks me. The solution, your course, is "silence." But the truth is, anyone who knows your name can break you in two. ~ Carmen Maria Machado
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by Carmen Maria Machado
Walk On By

solitude's my best friend
the only one who sees me cry
it tells me i will never need another man
if I keep my head up
and walk on by

solitude my best friend
my trust for you will never let me down
tell me i'll be better off not wondering why
it lifts my head up
and i walk on by

it lets my head up
and i walk on by

soltude's my best friend
and if i want to cry
it tells me I'll be happier within without
and i should turn my heart off
and stop waste my time

solitude my best friend
when i ask him why
tell me i'd be better off not finding out
so i keep my head up
and walk on by

so i keep my head up
and i walk on by

better not wonder
better not cry
better not wonder
better not cry
better not wonder
better not cry
better not wonder

better not wonder
better not cry
better not wonder

better not wonder
better not cry
better not wonder
better walk by

it keeps your head up
and i walk on by

better not wonder
better not cry
better not wonder
better not cry
better not wonder
better not cry
better not wonder
better walk by ~ El Parro Del Mar
El Subcomandante Marcos quotes by El Parro Del Mar
As James entered the El Paso city limits, he began thinking about lyrics to a song that would describe his journey. "I'm just cruise'n in my ride, with my posse by my side." Well, he didn't have anyone by his side - not even that dumb loser Grady, but that was hardly the point. This song would be his legacy, and he wanted to get it right. It would embody the contempt that he felt for society with all its rules and restrictions. It would make him into a folk hero. He would not pretend to die for any "cause." He would let the world know that he had preferred a watery death to an existence where he was bound by mindless regulations. ~ Joyce Swann
