A timeless collection of quotations by visionaries who have been catalysts for change - through the ages and across the globe You Had Better Make Some Noise brings together the words of social activists, revolutionaries, artists, writers, musicians, philosophers, politicians, and more - galvanizing us all to do the same. Familiar figures - Thomas Paine to Bertrand Russell, Augustine to Gloria Steinem, Harvey Milk to Ai Weiwei, James Baldwin to Margaret Mead - are joined by a chorus of voices that have made their own indelible marks on the legacy of protest and progress. "When the history of our times is written, will we be remembered as the generation that turned our backs in a moment of global crisis or will it be recorded that we did the right thing?" Nelson Mandela asked that question, and this positive and reinforcing book urges us to heed the call.
"As we all spin in a whirlpool of ideas, statements and unrest, find emotional life rafts in this punchy collection... You Had Better Make Some Noise distills inspiring, rousing statements from great philosophers, activists, revolutionaries, and creatives into a pocket-sized collection of quotes. The bold black white and yellow book brings a burst of intellect to the coffee table, as you flick through or dip in for moments of galvanising thought and inspiration.".CultureWhisper.com
