'The dreamer is the designer of tomorrow. Practical men can laugh at him; they do not know that he is the true dynamic force that pushes the world forward. Suppress him and the world will deteriorate toward barbarism. Despised, impoverished, he leads the way...sowing, sowing, sowing the seeds that will be harvested not by him, but by the practical men of tomorrow, who will at the same time laugh at another indefatigable dreamer busy seeding, seeding, seeding."

- Ricardo Flores Magon

Written in the face of failure and death after the 1911
Battle of Tijuana. The Tijuana colonia that bears his
name is on the high mesa overlooking the Rio Tijuana
where it meets the Pacific at the Tijuana Sloughs.
