Gramsci, Follower of Marxism – Quotes for Essay and Ethics

Gramsci

Pessimism of the spirit; optimism of the will.

I’m a pessimist because of intelligence, but an optimist because of will.

The challenge of modernity is to live without illusions and without becoming disillusioned.

To tell the truth is revolutionary.

I turn and turn in my cell like a fly that doesn’t know where to die.

All men are intellectuals… but not all men have in society the function of intellectuals.
