Normally, I'm against big things, I think the world's gonna be saved by millions of small things. Pete Seeger, 90th birthday interview

My first memory is not actually actually hearing Pete Seeger, it's seeing his banjo and seeing the words written on it, cause I was a fan of Woody Guthrie and his "this machine kills fascists" and Pete, he had sort of a subtle twist on it with "this machine surrounds hatred and forces it to surrender" and then I knew that there was a thoughtful man behind that banjo.Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine (Pete Seeger 90th Birthday interview)
