“You’ve got to be a bit utopian to be an artist because it is not a very realistic occupation. The thought of being an artist in itself I think is a utopian idea because I don’t really make anything useful and I think that in of itself is an illustration of my disposition.”

“I would like to leave behind me the conviction that if we maintain a certain amount of caution and organization we deserve victory. You cannot carry out fundamental change without a certain amount of madness. In this case, it comes from nonconformity, the courage to turn your back on the old formulas, the courage to invent the future. It took the madmen of yesterday for us to be able to act with extreme clarity today. I want to be one of those madmen. We must dare to invent the future.”

– Thomas Sankara, 1985
