To keep quite is to allow yourself to believe that you have no opinions, that you want nothing, and in certain cases it amounts to really wanting nothing. . .Silence expresses this attitude very satisfactorily. But from the moment the rebel finds his voice – even though he has nothing to say but no – he begins to consider things in particular. In the etymological sense, the rebel is a turncoat. He acted under the lash of his master’s whip. Suddenly he turns and faces him. He chooses what is preferable to what is not.
- Albert Camus (1913-1960)
