„or: There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.“

— Vladimir Lenin Russian politician, led the October Revolution 1870 - 1924
Always without citation but supposedly describing the Russian Revolution; earliest quotes online dating ~2005-2006 [http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Europe/ExposingBigLie_GGalloway.html "Exposing the Big Lie: Interview with George Galloway by Eric Ruder"] [http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/commentators/johann-hari/johann-hari-why-wont-israel-just-exchange-prisoners-6094888.html "Johann Hari: Why won't Israel just exchange prisoners? This is such a wacky, left-wing ideal that it was pursued by Ariel Sharon two years ago"], 19 July 2006; popularized describing the Arab Spring. May be loosely based on a similar phrasing by Karl Marx: How soon the English workers will throw off what seems to be a bourgeois contagion remains to be seen. So far as the main theses in your book [Condition of the Working Class in England] are concerned, by the by, they have been corroborated down to the very last detail by developments subsequent to 1844. For I have again been comparing the book with the notes I made on the ensuing period. Only your small-minded German philistine who measures world history by the ell and by what he happens to think are ‘interesting news items’, could regard 20 years as more than a day where major developments of this kind are concerned, though these may be again succeeded by days into which 20 years are compressed.

„Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.“

— Malcolm X American human rights activist 1925 - 1965
