I'm looking for the source of this quote:
"The world is unjust; if you accept it, you become an accomplice. If you want to change it, you become an executioner."
Does anyone recognize it?

Hi Mullan,
A quick internet search seems to indicate that it is from the first act, scene 6 from The Devil and the Good Lord (original title Le Diable et le Bon Dieu) by Jean-Paul Sartre.
The original quote in French reads: "Le monde est iniquité ; si tu l'acceptes, tu es complice, si tu le changes, tu es bourreau".
Cheers!

Hi Sandra,
thank you very much! It helps a lot. I was interested in reading a translation of the whole thing in my native language, now I know what to look for.
Cheers :)
