Nicholas Klein Quote

"First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. Then they attack you. And then, they build monuments to you."

-- union leader Nicholas Klein. See wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Klein

"Klein's words are often summarized as 'First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win,' and misattributed to Mahatma Gandhi[2] and to Arthur Schopenhauer as 'All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.'"
