49,546.  Injustice, poverty, slavery, ignorance – these may be cured by reform or revolution.  But men do not live only by fighting evils.  They live by positive goals, individual and collective, a vast variety of them, seldom predictable, at times incompatible.  (Revolution & Reform)  Isaiah Berlin 1909, British philosopher

 

 

86,448.  Yea, at that very moment

Consideration like an angel came

And whipped th’ offending Adam out of him,

Leaving his body as a paradise

T’envelop and contain celestial spirits

Never was such a sudden scholar made;

Never came reformation in a flood

With such a heady currance scouring faults.  (Redemption & Reform) William Shakespeare, Henry V I i 28-35, Canterbury to Ely 

 

 

30,351.  Thousands of people reacted to Peterloo by throwing themselves into campaigns of action.  Crusades which they embarked on with religious fervour.  Those that laboured for change did so now not only in secret political clubs, but in the light of churches and chapels.  Their targets were unnatural institutions – the monopoly of the Church of England, the ban on Catholic voters in Ireland.  In the manufacturing towns a hue and cry to have their own MPs ... In 1830 a new Revolution in France and a wave of violence in the English countryside meant the votes for change could not be postponed.  The Whigs took office for the first time since before 1789 as the champions of reform without revolution.  (Great Britain & England & Oppression & Revolution & Reform)  Simon Schama, A History of Britain: Forces of Nature

 

 

49,598.  People who pronounce themselves in favour of the method of legislative reform in place of and in contradistinction to the conquest of political power and social revolution, do not really choose a more tranquil, calmer and slower road to the same goal, but a different goal.  Instead of taking a stand for the establishment of a new society, they take a stand for the surface modification of the old society.  Our programme becomes not the realisation of socialism, but the reform of capitalism.  (Socialism & Reform & Revolution)  Rosa Luxemburg

 

 

38,816.  No government is going to reform the system that put it into power.  (Government & Reform)  Yes, Prime Minister: Power to the People s2e5, Sir Arnold to Sir Humphrey

 

 

86,453.  Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputations ... can never effect a reform.  (Reform & Reputation)  Susan B Anthony

 

 

86,454.  Religion can never reform mankind because religion is slavery.  (Reform & Religion)  Robert Green Ingersoll

 

 

86,455.  The only way a woman can ever reform a man is by boring him so completely that he loses all possible interest in life.  Oscar Wilde 

 

 

86,456.  Every abuse ought to be reformed, unless the reform is more dangerous than the abuse itself.  (Reform & Abuse)  Voltaire

 

 

86,457.  To reform a world, to reform a nation, no wise man will undertake; and all but foolish men know, that the only solid, though a far slower reformation, is what each begins and perfects on himself.  Thomas Carlyle 

 

 

86,458.  Reform is not pleasant, but grievous; no person can reform themselves without suffering and hard work, how much less a nation.  Thomas Carlyle

 

 

2,233.  Renew your brilliance.  It is the privilege of the Phoenix.  Excellence grows old and so does fame.  Custom wears down our admiration, and a mediocre novelty can conquer the greatest eminence in its old age.  So be reborn in courage, in intellect, in happiness, and in all else.  Dare to renew your brilliance, dawning many times, like the sun, only changing your surroundings.  Withhold it and make people miss it; renew it and make them applaud.  (Life’s Like That & Change & Reform)  Baltasar Gracian 1601-58, The World of Worldly Wisdom

 

 

95,675.  The world economy has never experienced a change comparable to the release of 1.25 billion people's energy that followed China’s renewed reforms in 1991.  (China & Economy & Reform)  Misha Glenny, McMafia 

 

 

95,991.  Dissidents used to be locked up in the Soviet lunatic asylums for ‘reformist delusions’, it being quite naturally and reasonably assumed that anybody mad enough to propose reforms had lost all sense of self-preservation.  Christopher Hitchens, God is Not Great p254
