Э́мма Го́льдман — североамериканская анархистка первой половины XX века.


„Когда мы уже больше не можем мечтать, мы умираем.“

„Анархизм, означает освобождение разума человека от власти религии, освобождение тела человека от власти вещей, освобождение от запретов и кандалов правительства, он означает социальный порядок основанный на собрании людей. Мысль проста, чиста, истинна она зажигает бунтарский дух, но понимаешь одно — истинная свобода требует не соизмеримых жертв и чего-то более. Большинство людей только думают, что хотят свободы, а на самом деле стремятся в узы социального порядка, жёстких законов, материализма. Единственная свобода нужная человеку — свобода жить комфортно.“


„Ревность и зависть — это два одинаково плохих способа сохранить любовь: если они что и делают, то только разрушают твою собственную самооценку и самоуважением. Ревнивые люди, равно как и завистливые друзья, сбрасывают вас на несколько ступенек вниз — туда, где заканчивается любовь и начинается отвращение и омерзение в отношениях.“

„Свобода не снизойдёт к народу, народ должен сам дорасти до Свободы. Liberty will not descend to a people, a people must raise themselves to Liberty.“ Фраза, выгравированная на могиле Эммы Голдман.

„If I can't dance to it, it's not my revolution.“

„People have only as much liberty as they have the intelligence to want and the courage to take.“

„I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.“

„If voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal.“


„Before we can forgive one another, we have to understand one another.“

„The most violent element in society is ignorance.“

„The philosophy of Atheism represents a concept of life without any metaphysical Beyond or Divine Regulator. It is the concept of an actual, real world with its liberating, expanding and beautifying possibilities, as against an unreal world, which, with its spirits, oracles, and mean contentment has kept humanity in helpless degradation.“ Anarchism and Other Essays

„Free love? As if love is anything but free! Man has bought brains, but all the millions in the world have failed to buy love. Man has subdued bodies, but all the power on earth has been unable to subdue love. Man has conquered whole nations, but all his armies could not conquer love. Man has chained and fettered the spirit, but he has been utterly helpless before love. High on a throne, with all the splendor and pomp his gold can command, man is yet poor and desolate, if love passes him by. And if it stays, the poorest hovel is radiant with warmth, with life and color. Thus love has the magic power to make of a beggar a king. Yes, love is free; it can dwell in no other atmosphere. In freedom it gives itself unreservedly, abundantly, completely. All the laws on the statutes, all the courts in the universe, cannot tear it from the soil, once love has taken root.“ Marriage and Love


„Anarchism stands for the liberation of the human mind from the dominion of religion and liberation of the human body from the coercion of property; liberation from the shackles and restraint of government. It stands for a social order based on the free grouping of individuals…“ Anarchism and Other Essays

„When we can't dream any longer we die.“

„Someone has said that it requires less mental effort to condemn than to think.“

„Ask for work. If they don't give you work, ask for bread. If they do not give you work or bread, then take bread.“ Anarchism and Other Essays
