35 Inspirational Arundhati Roy Quotes On Success

Suzanna Arundhati Roy  is an Indian author best known for her novel The God of Small Things (1997), which won the Man Booker Prize for Fiction in 1997 and became the best-selling book by a non-expatriate Indian author.[citation needed] She is also a political activist involved in human rights and environmental causes. May these Arundhati Roy Quotes On Success inspire you to take action so that you may live your dreams.

1. “I could weep for a river-valley, and I have. But for a country? Oh man, I don’t know.” Arundhati Roy

2. “Anything’s possible in Human Nature . Love. Madness. Hope. Infinite joy.” Arundhati Roy

3. “Soviet-style communism failed, not because it was intrinsically evil, but because it was flawed. It allowed too few people to usurp too much power. Twenty-first century market capitalism, American-style, will fail for the same reasons. Both are edifices constructed by human intelligence, undone by human nature.” Arundhati Roy

4. “The idea of justice – even just dreaming of justice – is revolutionary. The language of human rights tends to accept a status quo that is intrinsically unjust – and then tries to make it more accountable.” Arundhati Roy

5. “The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability. Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.” Arundhati Roy

6. “We need a new kind of politics. Not the politics of governance, but the politics of resistance. The politics of opposition. The politics of joining hands across the world and preventing certain destruction.” Arundhati Roy

7. “People who promote the free market and growth are far more romantic, and far more ideologically driven and blinded by their vision than somebody who goes in and comments about the beauty of a forest or the stars in the sky.” Arundhati Roy

8. “Empathy may be the single most important quality that must be nurtured to give peace a fighting chance.” Arundhati Roy

9. “Wars are never fought for altruistic reasons. They’re usually fought for hegemony, for business. And then of course there’s the business of war.” Arundhati Roy

10. “The people who created the crisis in the first place will not be the ones that come up with a solution.” Arundhati Roy

11. “Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness — and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe. The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling — their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.” Arundhati Roy

12. “It was a time when the unthinkable became the thinkable and the impossible really happened.” Arundhati Roy

13. “To annihilate indigenous populations eventually paves the way to our own annihilation. They are the only people who practice sustainable living. We think they are relics of the past, but they may be the gatekeepers to our future.” Arundhati Roy

14. “We need a new kind of politics. Not the politics of governance, but the politics of resistance. The politics of opposition. The politics of joining hands across the world and preventing certain destruction.” Arundhati Roy

15. “Every people, every society, needs a culture of resistance, a culture of being difficult and disobedient, that is the only way they will ever be able to stand up to the inevitable abuse of power by whoever runs the state apparatus, the capitalists, the communists, the socialists, the Gandhians, whoever.” Arundhati Roy

16. “At a time when opportunism is everything, when hope seems lost, when everything boils down to a cynical business deal, we must find the courage to dream. To reclaim romance. The romance of believing in justice, in freedom, and in dignity. For everybody.” Arundhati Roy

17. “Democracy no longer means what it was meant to. It has been taken back into the workshop. Each of its institutions has been hollowed out, and it has been returned to us as a vehicle for the free market, of the corporations. For the corporations, by the corporations.” Arundhati Roy

18. “Power is fortified not just by what it destroys, but also by what it creates. Not just by what it takes, but also by what it gives. And powerlessness reaffirmed not just by the helplessness of those who have lost, but also by the gratitude of those who have (or think they have) gained.” Arundhati Roy

19. “Change is one thing. Acceptance is another.” Arundhati Roy

20. “In 2001, we were told that the war in Afghanistan was a feminist mission. The marines were liberating Afghan women from the Taliban. Can you really bomb feminism into a country? And now, after 25 years of brutal war – 10 years against the Soviet occupation, 15 years of US occupation – the Taliban is riding back to Kabul and will soon be back to doing business with the United States.” Arundhati Roy

21. “The trouble is that once you see it, you can’t unsee it. And once you’ve seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing, becomes as political an act as speaking out. There’s no innocence. Either way, you’re accountable.” Arundhati Roy

22. “Little events, ordinary things, smashed and reconstituted. Suddenly, they become the bleached bones of a story.” Arundhati Roy

23. “As a woman who grew up in a village in India, I’ve spent my whole life fighting tradition. There’s no way that I want to be a traditional Indian housewife.” Arundhati Roy

24. “We must pay close attention to those with another imagination: an imagination outside of capitalism, as well as communism. We will soon have to admit that those people, like the millions of indigenous people fighting to prevent the takeover of their lands and the destruction of their environment – the people who still know the secrets of sustainable living – are not relics of the past, but the guides to our future.” Arundhati Roy

25. “Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” Arundhati Roy

26. “He folded his fear into a perfect rose. He held it out in the palm of his hand. She took it from him and put it in her hair.” Arundhati Roy

27. “That’s what careless words do. They make people love you a little less.” Arundhati Roy

28. “To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.” Arundhati Roy

29. “If we were to lose the ability to be emotional, if we were to lose the ability to be angry, to be outraged, we would be robots. And I refuse that.” Arundhati Roy

30. “Human rights are fundamental rights, they are the minimum, the very least we demand. Too often, they become the goal itself. What should be the minimum becomes the maximum – all we are supposed to expect – but human rights aren’t enough. The goal is, and must always be, justice.” Arundhati Roy

31. “The only thing worth globalizing is dissent.” Arundhati Roy

32. “Some things come with their own punishments.” Arundhati Roy

33. “Empathy may be the single most important quality that must be nurtured to give peace a fighting chance.” Arundhati Roy

34. “There’s really no such thing as the ‘voiceless’. There are only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard.” Arundhati Roy

35. “The IMF and the World Bank, the most opaque and secretive entities, put millions into NGOs who fight against “corruption” and for “transparency.” They want the Rule of Law – as long as they make the laws. They want transparency in order to standardise a situation, so that global capital can flow without any impediment.” Arundhati Roy

The people of the village, who once abhorred you, have begun to admire you. They think of you as a comrade. It’s because you fought hard for their acceptance. You once said it was everyone who cares about you who helped you get where you are now. If you forget others because you have power, and become arrogant and egotistical, you’ll eventually become just like Madara.
