Quote by Martin Luther King Jr.
A social movement that only moves people is merely a revolt. A movement that changes both people and institutions is a revolution.
This quote suggests that there is a distinction between a social movement that simply incites people to act and a movement that brings about meaningful and lasting change. The quote implies that a revolt, while powerful in its ability to mobilize individuals, may only be temporary or superficial. In contrast, a revolution entails a more fundamental transformation, affecting not only people but also the structures and systems they exist within. It implies that true change involves challenging and reshaping existing institutions and norms, rather than simply causing momentary disruptions.
But you play that passage like it's the -memory- of love. You're so young, yet you know desertion, abandonment. That's why you play that third movement the way you do. Most cellists, they play it with joy. But for you, it's not about joy, it's about the memory of a joyful time that's gone for ever.
The press is no substitute for institutions. It is like the beam of a searchlight that moves restlessly about, bringing one episode and then another out of darkness into vision. Men cannot do the work of the world by this light alone. They cannot govern society by episodes, incidents, and eruptions. It is only when they work by a steady light of their own, that the press, when it is turned upon them, reveals a situation intelligible enough for a popular decision.
