A man who has no rebellion in him has no salt, A man who has no rebellion in him has no spine; but the society consists of spineless people." " People who are rebellious, people who are not able to fit in the common rut, people who are not mediocre and who aspire for something higher, who aspire for something greater, people for whom this life as it is does not give any contentment. They are the adventurers, the explorers, they are the salt of the earth. They need no therapy: they need all encouragement to go into their rebellion as deeply as possible, to go in search of the unknown. They are the pioneers. The pioneers have always been thought somehow to be mad, eccentric, crazy, and the society has always tried to pull them down to the bourgeois level. Society needs yes sayers; it does not want anybody who is individual. It wants people who are only personas, just pseudo, individual for the names sake, otherwise not, people who dress in the same way as everybody is doing, who go to the same church as everybody is going, who want to live a life which is everybody's life. These pioneers don't want to live their life-that's what rebellion is." " I am not here to destroy your rebellion. I am here to enhance it, to protect it, to help it, to make it stronger.
