If the barricades went up in our streets and the poor became masters, I think the priests would escape, I fear the gentlemen would; but I believe the gutters would simply be running with the blood of philanthropists.
— G. K. Chesterton

I have a rendezvous with Death at some disputed barricade.
Alan Seeger barricade quote

Owning your own home is America's unique recipe for avoiding revolution and promoting pseudo-equality at the same time.

— Florence King

With society and its public, there is no longer any other language than that of bombs, barricades, and all that follows.
— Antonin Artaud

We cannot continually barricade ourselves under some falsified idea of race, because our idea of blackness and race is simply reactionary. Africans didn't walk around Africa being black and proud, they walked around proud.
— barricade quotation by Saul Williams
