When I was around 16 or 17, I got asked to model, but because I was very ‘tomboy’ at the time, I wasn’t interested. But then I had a bit of teenage rebellion, and I saw modeling as an opportunity to get away from school and parents, so I thought, ‘OK, maybe I will be a model.’

Tom Berenger
Well, acting itself is a form of rebellion, always. Getting up there in front of people, telling stories – you’re kind of going against the grain to begin with, wanting to do that, don’t you think? Why else would you do it? Except maybe as kind of a way to affirm your very existence.
John Cusack
Fashions have done more harm than revolutions.

William S. Burroughs
Rock music has always embraced – and even represented – rebellion, rowdiness, and a robust disdain for social decorum. But along with more classical art forms like theater, opera, and the symphony, it’s suffering from the distracted, smartphone-carrying audiences of the digital age.
Elizabeth Flock
The interest right now is taking resources back to the state and allowing the minority to have tyranny over the minority. It’s an ideological power grab. It’s like in this Congressional rebellion they are willing to sink the ship to destroy the captain.

Susan B. Anthony
Rebellion is not going to go away…What has been unleashed, I think, can’t be stopped…The importance of continuing acts of resistance is that it keeps this narrative alive…We speak a fundamental truth about this system that terrifies them.
Chris Hedges
The absolute key issue is: how do you create enough political pressure? It’s up to us to create that political will and there are tried and tested techniques for doing that. So we’re talking about the need for civil disobedience that escalates into a rebellion and uprising.
Gail Bradbrook
No big modern war has been won without preponderant sea power; and, conversely, very few rebellions of maritime provinces have succeeded without acquiring sea power.

What created democracy was Thomas Paine and Shays’ Rebellion, the suffragists and the abolitionists and on down through the populists and the labor movement, including the Wobblies. Tough, in your face people… Mother Jones, Woody Guthrie… Martin Luther King and Caesar Chavez. And now it’s down to us.
Jim Hightower
There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, “why?” is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.
Elisabeth Elliot
A rebellion is not a revolution. It may ultimately lead to that end.
Bhagat Singh

Fethullah Gulen
Art is a part of the rebellion against the realities of its unfulfilled desire.
Emma Goldman
If the peasants are in open rebellion, then they are outside the law of God.

It is exactly like killing a mad dog.
Martin Luther
Self-sacrifice enables us to sacrifice other people without blushing.

In situations of sparse resources along with degraded self-images and depoliticized sensibilities, one avenue for poor people is in existential rebellion and anarchic expression. The capacity to produce social chaos is the last resort of desperate people.
Cornel West
Yes, there were piano bands and great rock pianists, from Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard to Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman, and Elton John. But something about the electric guitar speaks of more than music – it epitomizes and gives voice to the rebellion, power, and sexuality of rock.

Attempts at reform, when they fail, strengthen despotism, as he that struggles tightens those cords he does not succeed in breaking.
Charles Caleb Colton
A dirty joke is not, of course, a serious attack on morality, but it is a sort of mental rebellion, a momentary wish that things were otherwise.

Thomas Jefferson
Enforced religion breeds precisely what it most fears: rebellion against religion, cynicism about religion, skepticism about its claims, and, as a consequence, indifference at best or outright antipathy at worst.
Langdon Brown Gilkey
I can’t do jokes. I’ve always come from left field and tried to subvert conventional comedy. I started as a rebellion against that – albeit a very soft and surreal rebellion. It’s escapist.
Julian Barratt
Daft Punk and I belong to the Generation 75. We were born in 1975, so we are somewhat in the middle of the rebellion and freedom of the 70s and the consumer culture of the 80s.
Pedro Winter
Knowledge enormous makes a God of me.
Names, deeds, gray legends, dire events, rebellions,
Majesties, sovran voices, agonies,
Creations and destroyings, all at once
Pour into the wide hollows of my brain,
And deify me, as if some blithe wine
Or bright elixir peerless I had drunk,
And so become immortal.
John Keats
if i repent of anything, it is very likely to be my good behavior. what demon possessed me that i behaved so well?
Henry David Thoreau

My extreme characters are in a state of rebellion or who are being ostracized or being misunderstood, or misfits or trying to fit in and fighting for their rights to love, live, and co-exist. They sort of mirror my own demons.
Xavier Dolan
I expected to die. At no time before the trial did I expect to escape with my life. Yet being executed in the gas chamber did not necessarily mean defeat. It could be one more step to bring the community to a higher level of consciousness.

Amber Heard
Certain I am, that Christian Religion does no where allow Rebellion.

Joyce Carol Oates
As long as Ireland is unfree the only honourable attitude for Irish men, women to have is an attitude of rebellion.
Patrick Pearse
When I was in my teens and twenties, I could see friends expressing how radical they were, and I envied them, the way they lived, the way they dressed. Maybe there is a part of me that is reserved, even in rebellion.
Susan Minot
I like to be challenged. I like rebellion. It adds some richness and some interest to life.
Albert Serra
Still the mind smiles at its own rebellions.
Robinson Jeffers

It is incorrect to classify the revolt of the Negro as simply a radical conflict of black against white or as a purely American problem. Rather, we are today seeing a global rebellion of the oppressed against the oppressor, the exploited against the exploiter.

In ‘The Hunger Games,’ in most people’s idea, in terms of rebellion or a civil-war situation, that would meet the criteria for a necessary war. These people are oppressed, their children are being taken off and put in gladiator games. They’re impoverished, they’re starving, they’re brutalized.
Suzanne Collins
I am Trella the victorious leader of the Force of Sheep rebellion. Yes the name sounds ridiculous, and I still can’t believe we named a major life changing event after livestock—or actually a stuffed animal—but it made sense at the time.
Maria V. Snyder
Loyalty is a word which has worked vast harm; for it has been made to trick men into being “loyal” to a thousand iniquities, whereas the true loyalty should have been to themselves – in which case there would have ensured a rebellion, and the throwing off of that deceptive yoke.
Mark Twain
By the time I was 18, I had absorbed punk rock from America, Britain, and the West Coast. All of it was so dark and weird and different and cool and hot and sexy and rebellious. It was a fist-in-the-air kind of rebellion that I wasn’t getting from the ’70s mainstream.
Michael Stipe
Frederick Douglass had charged the air with rebellion and redemption, and these in turn had supported him in the heat of abolitionism. But the atmosphere changed to one of repression after the Civil Rights Act of 1875.

Benjamin Franklin
When the temperamental and unconventional people are not mere plagiarists of dead eccentrics, they lack, in almost every case, thehistoric sense.
Katharine Fullerton Gerould

Gene Luen Yang
The real question should be: what makes a good political poem? The possible answers to that question are both obvious and yet still a little too subjective for anyone to ever fully agree on. What do I most wish to see in a political poet? Sublimated rebellion.
Andre Naffis-Sahely
You gotta understand – the state of Mississippi was in rebellion. It had rebelled against the United States. Now that has been a very difficult story for America to tell, but that’s what actually happened.
James Meredith
Most commonly revolt is born of material circumstances; but insurrection is always a moral phenomenon. Revolt is Masaniello, who led the Neapolitan insurgents in 1647; but insurrection is Spartacus. Insurrection is a thing of the spirit, revolt is a thing of the stomach.
Victor Hugo
Rebellions of the belly are the worst.
Francis Bacon
Ian Carroll grew up in Melbourne, went to Carey Grammar and then studied political science at Monash University during the turbulent years of anti-Vietnam rebellion.

Albert Camus
But even quashed rebellions leave us different. Because freedom may be a forbidden fruit in tyrannies, but once tasted, it is unforgettable.

Charles Inglis
Suspicion on one side breeds suspicion on the other, and new weapons beget counter-weapons.
John F. Kennedy
I guess there was a little bit of a slight rebellion, maybe a little bit of a renegade desire that made me realize at some point in my adolescence that I really liked pictures that told stories of things – genre paintings, historical paintings – the sort of derivatives we get in contemporary society.
Kara Walker
From April 1775 to July 1776, the undeclared war between England and its American colonies smoldered, flared up, appeared to sputter out… It was hardly, ever, a mass rebellion.
Gore Vidal
Rock n’ roll is about attitude and rebellion. It’s supposed to be fun and spontaneous.
Nonconformity is an empty goal, and rebellion against prevailing opinion merely because it is prevailing should no more be praised than acquiescence to it. Indeed, it is often a mask for cowardice, and few are more pathetic than those who flaunt outer differences to expiate their inner surrender.
William H. Whyte
I don’t believe in rushing and saying this is done and over with. That form of rebellion doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve always attempted to familiarize myself with the traditions, and consider that a responsibility of the artist.
Twyla Tharp
I’ve never had a teenage rebellion; I’m not that type of person. I always work out my problems in a conscientious way.
Kirsten Dunst
Teenage rebellion is for suburban schoolchildren. Get over it.

Martin Luther
My call is the call of battle- I nourish active rebellion;/ He going with me must go well armed.
Walt Whitman
I started doing some more specific research on Wales in that period because I like the idea of being authentic to the territory, and with that came the knowledge that there was this great rebellion that was happening with the Marcher barons and conflict with the king. A lot of it wasn’t documented by the English.
Kurt Sutter
Anyone who becomes master of a city accustomed to freedom and does not destroy it may expect to be destroyed by it; for such a city may always justify rebellion in the name of liberty and its ancient institutions.
Niccolo Machiavelli
Making war or rebellion is messy, like eating soup off a knife.
Edward Thomas
General rebellions and revolts of a whole people never were encouraged now or at any time. They are always provoked.

The end of rebellion is liberation, while the end of revolution is the foundation of freedom.
Hannah Arendt
I had a couple of years of rebellion – I was singing in a rock band.

Billy Squier
…this marvelous graceful thing, this joy of physics, this perfect balance between rebellion and obedience, is God’s own signature on earth.
Mark Helprin
I’m writing what I want to write. But it’s almost an act of rebellion on my part. Because as a person, I’ve always wanted to be very likeable, and I think that’s a horrible thing, particularly for women. You’re always like, “Oh, I hope I didn’t hurt anyone’s feelings. I hope they like me!” And that’s just so stupid.
Tama Janowitz
I went through a period of great rebellion within my family, when I was about 9 or 10. I was mad, I had no focus, had no real interest in anything, and so I started to do things that were just rebellious and stupid.
Kevin Spacey
All men should have a drop of treason in their veins, if nations are not to go soft like so many sleepy pears.
Rebecca West
What’s really interesting is when you get a brand-new wave that has no connection to anything else. It always reflects society. The flappers would cut the dresses and make them looser, they smoked, their hair was short. It was a rebellion against the corset and the Edwardian era.
Annie Lennox
For as the interposition of a rivulet, however small, will occasion the line of the phalanx to fluctuate, so any trifling disagreement will be the cause of seditions; but they will not so soon flow from anything else as from the disagreement between virtue and vice, and next to that between poverty and riches.
Batman: a force of chaos in my world of perfect order. The dark side of the Soviet dream. Rumored to be a thousand murdered dissidents, they said he was a ghost. A walking dead man. A symbol of rebellion that would never fade as long as the system survived. Anarchy in black.
Mark Millar
In a healthy nation there is a kind of dramatic balance between the will of the people and the government, which prevents its degeneration into tyranny.
Albert Einstein
When tyranny becomes law, rebellion becomes duty.
Thomas Jefferson
Revelation without a relationship produces rebellion.
Chris Oyakhilome
If the person who can effectively sanction ill-conceived wars can play the electric guitar, which is a symbol of rebellion, then that whole worldview becomes confused.
Steve Coogan
I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere.
Thomas Jefferson
The Sexual Revolution is a complete rebellion against authority, natural and supernatural, even against the body and its needs, its natural functions of child bearing. This is not reverence for life, it is a great denial and more resembles Nihilism than the revolution that they think they are furthering.
Dorothy Day
A mass movement attracts and holds a following not because it can satisfy the desire for self-advancement, but because it can satisfy the passion for self-renunciation.
Eric Hoffer
Not playing by the rules, not seeing things conventionally, that’s the heart of who he [ Steve Jobs] is, and he does it in small ways of everyday rebellion just almost to assert who he is, like not putting a license plate on his car.
Walter Isaacson
Quell rebellion before it spreads.
I think that rebellions arise out of anger, and they’re very short-lived. And a revolution has some sense of a long time frame, millions of years that we’ve been evolving on this planet.
Grace Lee Boggs
Beauty is a rebellion against time.
Milan Kundera
In 18th-century Scotland, the main event was the Jacobite rebellion under Bonnie Prince Charlie, so that seems like a nice dramatic backdrop.
Diana Gabaldon
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Thomas Jefferson
Taxing Women is a must-have primer for any woman who wants to understand how our current tax system affects her family’s economic condition. In plain English, McCaffery explains how the tax code stacks the deck against women and why it’s in women’s economic interest to lead the next great tax rebellion.
Patricia Schroeder
I hold that the world is sick of armed rebellions.
Mahatma Gandhi
We have 5000-year-old history which is now almost a part of our DNA. How do you break that? America, for example, doesn’t have that history behind it. It romanticizes rebellion. We look down upon rebellion. It’s an insult. To think out-of-the-box is looked down upon here.
Abhay Deol
I’ve never had a teenage rebellion, I’m not that type of person. I always work out my problems in a conscientious way.
Kirsten Dunst
When I went through puberty I had a huge rebellion against movies. I was so upset with how they brainwashed me that I didn’t watch movies for years.
Weyes Blood
The spirit of rebellion must live in Serbia. Only then will we know we are alive and not servants of a dictator.
Zoran ?in?ic
I look like a sweet, corn-fed kid. My roles are my rebellion.
Erika Christensen
In the long run even the most despotic governments with all their brutality and cruelty are no match for ideas. Eventually the ideology that has won the support of the majority will prevail and cut the ground from under the tyrant’s feet. Then the oppressed many will rise in rebellion and overthrow their masters.
Ludwig von Mises
So one reason the science educators panic at the first sign of public rebellion is that they fear exposure of the implicit religious content in what they are teaching.
Phillip E. Johnson
For a thousand years, Vietnam was a part of China. And that thousand years is punctuated throughout by rebellions from Vietnam.
Michael W. Michalak
Civilization is the lamb’s skin in which barbarism masquerades.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich
The revolution has always been in the hands of the young. The young always inherit the revolution.
Huey Newton
It means we’re on your side.” That’s what Bonnie said. I have people on my side? What side? Am I unwittingly the face of the hoped-for rebellion? Has the mockingjay on my pin become a symbol of resistance? If so, my side’s not doing too well.
Suzanne Collins
Life should be lived on the edge of life. You have to exercise rebellion: to refuse to tape yourself to rules, to refuse your own success, to refuse to repeat yourself, to see every day, every year, every idea as a true challenge – and then you are going to live your life on a tightrope.
Philippe Petit
I was very confused. I didn’t understand the difference between rebellion against God and rebellion against the system that’s not God.
Lauryn Hill
In my view, the problem with many conservative Christian parents is that they won’t allow their children to have a different worldview from their own, and they don’t forgive normal teenage experimentation, which they consider rebellion.
Julia Scheeres
The joyful news for anyone who desires to be rid of the consequences of past poor choices is that the Lord sees weaknesses differently than He does rebellion. Whereas the Lord warns that unrepented rebellion will bring punishment, when the Lord speaks of weaknesses, it is always with mercy.
Richard G. Scott
Break up the printing presses and you break up rebellion.
Dudley Nichols
The cause of the great War of the Rebellion against the United Status will have to be attributed to slavery.
Ulysses S. Grant
The PC rebellion is about a reaction against the media academic complex, which tells us what to say – or else.
Greg Gutfeld
A lot of women make choices based on how they saw their mother’s choices working out, how they saw the choices of the women elders in their lives working out. There’s some rebellion in that, but there’s also some deep reflection.
Ariel Gore
All punk music is is rebellion, going against the grain. It takes different forms. Sometimes it’s a band throwing their instruments around or making really violent and noisy sounds, but it doesn’t have to take that sonic form. It can take more of an energy.
Mura Masa
In order to create an alternative an oppressed group must at once shatter the self-reflecting world which encircles it and, at the same time, project its own image onto history.
Sheila Rowbotham
Rock evolved out of rebellion, so when you turn on the Billboard Awards or something like the Grammys, and there’s no rock on there, that’s a good sign – because that means that rock is not welcome inside of a pop format.
Ann Wilson
Young people, however, tend to ignore the customs of their elders. Adolescent rebellion has been responsible for all manner of absurd costumes. The more ridiculous a certain fashion is, the more adolescents will cling to it.
David Eddings
All destruction, by violent revolution or however it be, is but new creation on a wider scale.
Thomas Carlyle
With rebellion, awareness is born
Albert Camus
We’re on safe ground to presume that self-interest and hubris are at the core of the rebellion.
Michael S. Heiser
Where there is a living memory of struggle, they have a living memory of the rebellion. Where there’s no struggle afterward the rebellion is forgotten.
Vijay Prashad
The future will be the child of the past and the present, even if a rebellious child.
George Crumb
To me, Satan ultimately represents rebellion.
Marilyn Manson
The cumulative effects of the economic and financial sanctions might well bring the rebellion to an end within a matter of weeks rather than months.
Harold Wilson
Human rebellion ends in metaphysical revolution. It progresses from appearances to acts, from the dandy to the revolutionary.
Albert Camus
Nothing is more necessary or stronger in us than rebellion.
Georges Bataille
A State infinitely worse than that which the most inflamed Zealot, the most violent Republican or Enthusiast even pretended to dread before the Rebellion commenced.
Charles Inglis
A Failure in this Duty did once involve our Nation in all the Horrors of Rebellion and Civil War.
Charles Inglis
So that the failures to pass a civil rights bill isn’t because of Black Power, isn’t because of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee; it’s not because of the rebellions that are occurring in the major cities.
Stokely Carmichael
That’s one reason why it’s pretty worthless, I can’t totally buy it, if you think about it, it’s things like the Phil Spector records. On one level they were rebellion, on another level they were keeping the teenager in his place.
Lester Bangs
I was the angriest little person imaginable when I was younger. I woke up with a frown every morning. I barely talked, wore black all the time and had some serious teenage rebellion years
Holly Marie Combs
Relying, as I do, upon the Almighty Power, and encouraged as I am by these resolutions which you have just read, with the support which I receive from Christian men, I shall not hesitate to use all the means at my control to secure the termination of this rebellion, and will hope for success.
Abraham Lincoln
When the people rule, they must be rendered happy, or they will overturn the state.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Any people attempting to govern themselves by laws of their own making, and by officers of their own appointment, are in direct rebellion against the kingdom of God.
Orson Pratt
On every unauthoritative exercise of power by the legislature must the people rise in rebellion or their silence be construed into a surrender of that power to them? If so, how many rebellions should we have had already?
Thomas Jefferson
Having proceeded to this length, for which they are now ripe, we shall have a formidable rebellion against reason, the principle of all government, and against the very name of liberty.
Henry Knox
Alienation and loneliness plant the seeds for rebellion and consciousness.
B. W. Powe
In an age that has thrown off all tradition, the only rebellion possible is orthodoxy.
Peter Kreeft
The strongest rebellion may be expressed in quiet, undramatic behavior.
Benjamin Spock
Anyone who can be proved to be a seditious person is an outlaw before God and the emperor; and whoever is the first to put him to death does right and well. Therefore let everyone who can, smite, slay and stab, secretly or openly, remembering that nothing can be more poisonous, hurtful, or devilish than a rebel.
Martin Luther
Edgy’ music has always formed the cornerstone to any teenage rebellion. Most indulge in it precisely because adults like me don’t like them doing so.
David Lammy
Reason may be the lever, but sentiment gives you the fulcrum and the place to stand on if you want to move the world.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Those who are bent on revolutionizing society may be divided into those who seek something for themselves thereby and those who seek something for their children and grandchildren.
Friedrich Nietzsche
I spend a hell of a lot of time killing animals and fish so I wouldn’t kill myself. When a man is in rebellion against death, as I am in rebellion against death, he gets pleasure out of taking to himself one of the godlike attributes; that of giving it.
Ernest Hemingway
In an age of relativism, orthodoxy is the only possible rebellion left
Peter Kreeft
One of the saddest things about conformity is the ghastly sort of non-conformity it breeds; the noisy protesting, the aggressive rebelliousness, the rigid counter-fetishism.
Louis Kronenberger
What I would say is that in its first iteration, Extinction Rebellion is really about democracy, by calling in for these new democratic forms for people to have their power. And frankly, in many countries of the world, democracy is in just absolute shambles.
Gail Bradbrook
Just because I’m telling a story about a woman losing faith is not my rebellion against what I grew up in. If anything, it really affected the way I approached the story, and in fact, approach everything. I don’t judge my characters.
Vera Farmiga
I wore black because I liked it. I still do, and wearing it still means something to me. It’s still my symbol of rebellion — against a stagnant status quo, against our hypocritical houses of God, against people whose minds are closed to others’ ideas.
Johnny Cash
Try to remember the reason you started riding a motorcycle in the first place. For me, it was a couple of things but mostly rebellion.
Sonny Barger
It’s both rebellion and conformity that attack you with success.
Amy Tan
You can sway a thousand men by appealing to their prejudices quicker than you can convince one man by logic.
Robert A. Heinlein
I’ve always been a rule-breaker and a rebel. For me, drag has always been about rebellion, but also escapism. I think being able to creatively direct your own world is super powerful – and it’s beautiful.
Violet Chachki
I find rebellion packaged by a major corporation a little hard to take seriously.
David Byrne
Populism is not a style, it’s a people’s rebellion against the iron grip that big corporations have on our country – including our economy, government, media, and environment.
Jim Hightower
Individuals do not create rebellions; conditions do.
H. Rap Brown
Submission to the Scriptures is submission to God. Rebellion against the Scriptures is rebellion against God
Kevin DeYoung
The Band was rebelling against the rebellion. The rebellion went to a place where it became too obvious, too trendy, like you were just following the pack. So it was our choice to get off the bandwagon – no pun intended – and do things that were in our background and what was the most honest thing to do.
Robbie Robertson
The Bible was so revolutionary and against all that came before it. It was a force for siding with the oppressed and a rebellion against hierarchical, ancient societies. Now it’s institutionalized and all the life has been sucked out of it.
Ezra Furman
When any of us meet someone who rejects dominant norms and values, we feel a little less crazy for doing the same. Any act of rebellion or non-participation, even on a very small scale, is therefore a political act.
Charles Eisenstein
The beginning of men’s rebellion against God was, and is, the lack of a thankful heart.
Francis Schaeffer
I’m not saying we’re going to win. I am saying rebellion becomes a way to protect your own dignity. Corporations are, theologically speaking, institutions of death. They commodify everything – the natural world, human beings – that they exploit until exhaustion or collapse. They know no limits.
Chris Hedges
Intemperance is naturally punished with diseases; rashness, with mischance; injustice; with violence of enemies; pride, with ruin; cowardice, with oppression; and rebellion, with slaughter.
Thomas Hobbes
Sin is not weakness, it is a disease; it is red-handed rebellion against God and the magnitude of that rebellion is expressed by Calvary’s cross.
Oswald Chambers
The Southern rebellion was largely the outgrowth of the Mexican war. Nations, like individuals, are punished for their transgressions. We got our punishment in the most sanguinary and expensive war of modern times.
Ulysses S. Grant
No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.
Barbara Ehrenreich
The worst… was what the Pakistani soldiers did to the Bengali women after their failed rebellion.
Iris Chang
To write well consists of continuously making small erosions, wearing away grammar in its established form, current norms of language. It is an act of permanent rebellion and subversion against social environs.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
A populace never rebels from passion for attack, but from impatience of suffering.
Edmund Burke
Rebellion without truth is like spring in a bleak, arid desert.
Khalil Gibran
Personally more so than shock, I think, rap music has to be born of rebellion.
The spirit of rebellion can only exist in a society where a theoretical equality conceals great factual inequalities. The problem of rebellion, therefore, has no meaning except within our own Western society.
Albert Camus
Freedom is a sentiment associated with the youth. It is rebellion. It is what you feel at that age, and it is very important.
Zoya Akhtar
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.
John F. Kennedy
Media is extraordinarily important and is an extraordinarily powerful tool. There’s a reason that the first things that a rebellion or revolt will take is the media. The story you transmit is the story that becomes a given, or the narrative of a country and people.
Dan Gilroy
I have named the destroyers of nations: comfort, plenty, and security – out of which grow a bored and slothful cynicism, in which rebellion against the world as it is, and myself as I am, are submerged in listless self-satisfaction.
John Steinbeck
Bon Jovi’s trick is to use heavy-metal chords and still sound absolutely safe. Rock & roll used to be rebellion disguised as commercialism; now so much of it is commercialism disguised as rebellion.
Michael Azerrad
The only justification of rebellion is success.
Thomas Reed
It was the disobedience and rebellion of the Jews, God’s chosen people, to their covenantal responsibility to serve only the one true God, Jehovah, that gave rise to the opposition and persecution that they experienced beginning in Canaan and continuing to this very day.
John Hagee
Everyone was saying computers were going to be the future of art; everyone had to do something in this medium. And it was almost some sort of rebellion that I wanted to do these small, intimate drawings.
Marcel Dzama
Conformity is painful. You know, it’s too tight. Conformity leads to rebellion. So a desire for happiness is in direct conflict with a desire for freedom.
Thomas Jane
Disobedience, in the eyes of any one who has read history, is man’s original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion.
Oscar Wilde
Folk music was to strengthen and unify people, whether it was through an uprising and rebellion or whether is was through hard work, bringing in crops. But it was to strengthen each other and that’s still what music is about today.
PJ Harvey
My form of rebellion was starting to play guitar. I was 13. The first song I played was ‘Lovesick Blues’ by Hank Williams.
Phoebe Bridgers
Christianity [is] a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature.
Adolf Hitler
I was impressed that when it came to making ‘Rebellion,’ they sought out Aku Louhimies, a Finnish director who’s part of that new wave of Scandinavian realist drama.
Brian Gleeson
There was a point when I was so sick of this physical perfection thing that I thought it would be good for all young girls to eat burgers and sweets as a rebellion but I don’t think that anymore because it’s not healthy.
Alicia Silverstone
Loving, knowing, and respecting our bodies is a powerful and invincible act of rebellion in this society.
Inga Muscio
Tomorrow at 7, I shall be shot; but I am innocent of the crime of rebellion. I am going to die with a tranquil conscience.
Jose Rizal
When you get to your teenage years, you want to find something that you identify with. It’s almost a slight rebellion; you don’t want to listen to what your parents listen to anymore; you want to find your own music. That, for me, was hearing the Fugees for the first time.
Rag’n’Bone Man
We need more people speaking out. This country is not overrun with rebels and free thinkers. It’s overrun with sheep and conformists.
Bill Maher
Men seldom, or rather never for a length of time and deliberately, rebel against anything that does not deserve rebelling against.
Thomas Carlyle
The withdrawal of a State from a league has no revolutionary or insurrectionary characteristic. The government of the State remains unchanged as to all internal affairs. It is only its external or confederate relations that are altered. To term this action of a Sovereign a ‘rebellion’ is a gross abuse of language.
Jefferson Davis
No one can go on being a rebel too long without turning into an autocrat.
Lawrence Durrell
Just as the Internet drops transaction and collaboration costs in business and government, it also drops the cost of dissent, of rebellion, and even insurrection.
Don Tapscott
I see no profound progress taking place when there is no hope, no inspiration, only drastic overthrow and rebellion. Before having a revolution of thought there must be real ideals to aspire to, and they are only to be found within.
Vera Nazarian
Methods of thought which claim to give the lead to our world in the name of revolution have become, in reality, ideologies of consent and not of rebellion.
Albert Camus
To the Young Artists of Italy! The cry of rebellion that we launch, linking our ideals with those of the Futurist poets, does not originate in an aesthetic clique. It expresses the violent desire that stirs in the veins of every creative artist today.
Umberto Boccioni
That was what they did with themselves, those two Gracelings, along with a small band of friends: They stirred up trouble on a serious scale—bribery, coercion, sabotage, organized rebellion—all directed at stopping the worst behavior of the world’s most seriously corrupt kings.
Kristin Cashore
The consequences of things are not always proportionate to the apparent magnitude of those events that have produced them. Thus the American Revolution, from which little was expected, produced much; but the French Revolution, from which much was expected, produced little.
Charles Caleb Colton
I used rebellion as a way to hide out. We use criticism as a fake participation.
Chuck Palahniuk
A fear Paul had transformed all these years, like a gifted alchemist, into anger and rebellion.
Kim Edwards
My mom was a history teacher when I was a kid, so I hated history out of rebellion.
Alexander Dreymon
The Lord sees weaknesses differently than He does rebellion.
Richard G. Scott
Criticism is the seed of divorce, and it develops rebellion in our young.
Gordon B. Hinckley
There are some people bent on blowing up the situation in the country. I call them the fifth column. They are not an opposition. They want to stage a rebellion in the country. Their dream is to topple the government and overthrow the president.
Alexander Lukashenko
Not only is true love rare and true rebellion rare, real love is itself a radical form of rebellion – engagement, thinking, and being – and therefore happens in the context of a larger project of justice, liberation, and critical thinking.
Masha Tupitsyn
The spirit of rebellion is present in every great city, and the great task of wise government is to keep it dormant, for if it wakes it is a torrent which no dam can hold back.
Giacomo Casanova
I never was an Abolitionest, not even what could be called anti slavery, but I try to judge farely and honestly and it become patent to my mind early in the rebellion that the North and South could never live at peace with each other except as one nation, and that without Slavery.
Ulysses S. Grant
Just the perfect touch of rebellion,” says Haymitch “Very nice.” Rebellion?
Suzanne Collins
Every humane and patriotic heart must grieve to see a bloody and causeless rebellion, costing thousands of human lives and millions of treasure. But as it was predetermined and inevitable, it was long enough delayed. Now is the appropriate time to solve the greatest problem ever submitted to civilized man.
Thaddeus Stevens
Learning is always rebellion… Every bit of new truth discovered is revolutionary to what was believed before.
Margaret Lee Runbeck
Every rebellion implies some kind of unity.
Albert Camus
But however long you may have continued in rebellion, and how ever black and long the catalog of your sins, yet if you will now turn to God by a sincere repentance, and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, you shall not be cast out.
Archibald Alexander
I was a rebel, the worst kid you could ask for. I did the opposite of everything my parents asked me to do, and I was well known for my rebellion.
Fala Chen
I always believed in God and Christ, but I was in rebellion – trying to make my relationship with God fit into my life instead of making my life fit in with him. I was stubborn.
Scott Stapp
The same rebellion, the same impatience, the same anger that exists in the hearts of the dark people in Africa and Asia is existing in the hearts and minds of 20 million black people in this country who have been just as thoroughly colonized as the people in Africa and Asia.
Malcolm X
Rebellion, in man, is the refusal to be treated as an object and to be reduced to simple historical terms. It is the affirmation of a nature common to all men, which eludes the world of power.
Albert Camus
Rebellion cannot exist without a strange form of love.
Albert Camus
I intend to vote against authorizing the president to use military force in Syria. The Obama Administration has not provided a clear or convincing strategy for inserting our military into the conflict. I am also deeply concerned about the extent to which al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists are involved in the rebellion.
Tom Graves
Rebellion’ was amazing, there was a lot of anticipation leading up to that event.
Tessa Blanchard
The late brilliant actions in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Arkansas divided and weakened the enemy on the Rappahannock, and the auspicious moment seems to have arrived to strike a great and mortal blow at the Rebellion, and to gain that decisive victory which is due to the country.
Ambrose Burnside
The one thing I never want to see again is a military parade. When I resigned from the army and went to a farm I was happy. When the rebellion came, I returned to the service because it was a duty. I had no thought of rank; all I did was try and make.
Ulysses S. Grant
I won’t go back and live in the sea again.
Janet Morris
Rap always has that undertone of rebellion and I just wanted to explore it. I felt there was a rebel within me who was against everything – the education system and teachers, and even my parents.
I could take everything I have built up over 35 years in my ministry and destroy it all if I went out tomorrow and committed one act of rebellion.
David Jeremiah
Both of my parents were journalists, and my rebellion, such as it was, was to become a fiction writer.
David Shields
When I said that I make out with dudes, there was a slight sense of sexual rebellion in that. And I probably even made it a bigger deal than it was.
Pete Wentz
Infidels in all ages have battled for the rights of man, and have at all times been the fearless advocates of liberty and justice.
Robert Green Ingersoll
my rebelliousness went so deep that, faced with a can of asparagus that instructed me to open at this end, I always, stubbornly, opened it at the other.
Dorothy Gilman
Rebellion against a king may be pardoned, or lightly punished, but the man who dares to rebel against the laws of a republic ought to suffer death.
Samuel Adams
The reason why wicked men and devils hate God is, because they see Him in relation to themselves. Their hearts rise up in rebellion, because they see Him opposed to their selfishness.
Charles Grandison Finney
As a dimension of man, rebellion actually defines him.
Robert M. Lindner
The marvelous rebellion of man at all signs reading “Keep Off.
Carl Sandburg
Caprice, independence and rebellion, which are opposed to the social order, are essential to the good health of an ethnic group. We shall measure the good health of this group by the number of its delinquents. Nothing is more immobilizing than the spirit of deference.
Jean Dubuffet
It is not rebellion itself which is noble but the demands it makes upon us.
Albert Camus
That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred ans sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any state or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thence forward, and forever free.
Abraham Lincoln
You see, rebellion, and the disobedience it causes, keeps us from having the power of God that’s available to us as Christians.
Joyce Meyer
РЎommercial hip-hop is not youth rebellion, not when the heroes of hip-hop like Puffy are taking pictures with Donald Trump and the heroes of capitalism – you know that’s not rebellion. That’s not “the street” – that’s Wall Street.
Saul Williams
It’s true the punk fashion itself was iconographic: rips and dirt, safety pins, zips, slogans, and hairstyles. These motifs were so iconic in themselves – motifs of rebellion.
Vivienne Westwood
Complete civil disobedience is a state of peaceful rebellion, a refusal to obey every single state-made law.
Mahatma Gandhi
Rebellion is not always the right thing. Following the rules is not always the right thing. You have to think for yourself and identify the things that do not work for you.
Yorgos Lanthimos
I believe in life and in people. I feel obliged to advocate their highest ideals as long as I believe them to be true. I also see myself compelled to revolt against ideals I believe to be false, since recoiling from rebellion would be a form of treason
Naguib Mahfouz
This future man, whom the scientists tell us they will produce in no more than a hundred years, seems to be possessed by a rebellion against human existence as it has been given, a free gift from nowhere (secularly speaking), which he wishes to exchange, as it were, for something he has made himself.
She has a choice. She can either accept a life of misery or she can struggle against it. And she chooses to struggle…she fails in the end but there’s something beautiful and even heroic in her rebellion.
Kate Winslet
The 1916 uprising was kind of the most important rebellion in Ireland’s fight for independence that had been going on for 700 years. So it’s a very important moment in history for us.
Saoirse Ronan
A dirty joke is a sort of mental rebellion.
George Orwell
I was still interested in the youth rebellion but never-the-less I stopped being a victim. Stopped trying to attack the establishment realizing that it takes too much of your energy.
Vivienne Westwood
There may be thousands of principles of Marxism, but in the final analysis they can be summed up in one sentence: Rebellion is justified.
Mao Zedong
In every rebellion is to be found the metaphysical demand for unity, the impossibility of capturing it, and the construction of a substitute universe.
Albert Camus
Rebellion in this land shall lose his sway, meeting the check of such another day.
William Shakespeare
. . . this oligarchy of sex, which makes fathers, brothers, husbands and sons, the oligarchs over the mother and sisters, the wife and daughters of every household – which ordains all men sovereigns, all women subjects, carries dissension, discord, and rebellion into every house of the nation.
Susan B. Anthony
Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, each of us can become clean and the burden of our rebellion will be lifted. Remember, repentance is not punishment. It is the hope-filled path to a more glorious future.
Richard G. Scott
It is an unsufferable blasphemy to reject the public ministry or to say that people can become holy without sermons and Church. This involves a destruction of the Church and rebellion against ecclesiastical order; such upheavals must be warded off and punished like all other revolts.
Martin Luther
If you stand up to the human race you lose something called their ‘goodwill’; if you kowtow to them you gain … their permission to continue kowtowing.
Celia Green
When you come from a family of communists and you go through your teenage rebellion, what’s the best way of rebelling from a family of communists? Well, I put on a suit and tie and became a capitalist… There was nothing I could do to upset my family more than that.
Bill Browder
…in rebellion against the typical British-type dry flies, I created the Wulff series.
Lee Wulff
The Root of All Rebellion: It is because we are not near enough to Thee to partake of thy liberty that we want a liberty of our own different from thine.
George MacDonald
There’s a basis for the war, historically, in the ‘Hunger Games,’ which would be the third servile war, which was Spartacus’ war, where you have a man who is a slave who is then turned into a gladiator who broke out of the gladiator school and led a rebellion and then became the face of the war.
Suzanne Collins
The wise man always throws himself on the side of his assailants. It is more his interest than it is theirs to find his weak point.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I don’t know, it is a very quiet rebellion. […] I don’t get angry. I sit quietly in the corner and say ‘no’.
Bobbie Ann Mason
I hate every violent overthrow, because as much is destroyed as is gained by it.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Rebels and dissidents challenge the complacent belief in a just world, and they are usually denigrated for their efforts.
Carol Tavris
Grace is the love of God shown to the unlovely. It is God reaching downward to people who are in rebellion against him.
Jerry Bridges
Let me say that the path I did take for a brief period of my life was not of reckless drug use, hurting others, but it was a path of quiet rebellion, of a little experimentation of a darker side of my confusion in a confusing world, lost in the midst of finding my identity.
Jennifer Capriati
The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.
Suzanne Collins
I have made speeches urging women to adopt methods of rebellion such as have been adopted by men in every revolution.
Emmeline Pankhurst
Sin and death and suffering and war and poverty are not natural—they are the devastating results of our rebellion against God. We long for a return to Paradise—a perfect world, without the corruption of sin, where God walks with us and talks with us in the cool of the day.
Randy Alcorn
I refuse to be. In
the madhouse of the inhuman
I refuse to live.
With the wolves of the market place
I refuse to howl.
Marina Tsvetaeva
God only pours out his light into the mind after having subdued the rebellion of the will by an altogether heavenly gentleness which charms and wins it.
Blaise Pascal
Is all anger sin? No, but some of it is. Even God Himself has righteous anger against sin, injustice, rebellion and pettiness.
Joyce Meyer
