    My guess though only a guess is Dostoevsky in either The Possessed or The
    Brothers Karamazov. Also Camus is a possibility.

    Subject: [sixties-l] Quotation Source

    In Lindsay Anderson's If... (1968), about armed resistance in a British
    boarding-school, Malcolm McDowell as Travis proclaims 'Violence and
    revolution are the only pure acts.' I have a feeling this is a quotation
    from somewhere (Artaud, Guevara?) but cannot locate the source in my
    dictionary of quotations.

    Also does anyone know how to call the symbolic revolutionary female seen
    storming French barricades - I think I've seen her referred to for some
    reason as Marianne but am not sure why or if that is correct. There's a
    female figure of this kind who joins the boys in their rebellion.

    Very grateful if anyone could help me out...
