Author Quotes

To abolish religion as the illusory happiness of the people is to demand their real happiness.

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of spiritless conditions. It is the opium of the people.

The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.

Necessity is blind until it becomes conscious. Freedom is the consciousness of necessity.

Every unprejudiced observer seers that the greater the centralization of the means of production, the greater is the corresponding heaping together of the laborers within a given space; that therefore, the swifter capitalistic accumulation, the more miserable are the dwellings of the working people.

Accumulation of wealth at one pole is... at the same time accumulation of misery, agony of toil, slavery, ignorance, brutality, mental degradation, at the opposite pole, i.e., on the side of the class that produces its own product in the form of capital.
