This is a quote from Walkaway by Cory Doctorow. So far, an absolutely wonderful book.
You cannot demand a revolution, more so than you can demand a plant to grow.
You must give the Plant water, sunlight, fertile soil. It has to be carefully cared for, nourished and loved.
Failure to do so, it will wilt and die...
Carefully take care of, and have patience for the Revolution. And it will bloom a beautiful Rose.

Some kind of Dev or something. 🌹
