William Morris (1834-1896) was an English socialist artist, novelist, and poet.

"I will begin by saying that I call myself a Communist, and have no wish to qualify that word by joining any other to it. The aim of Communism seems to me to be the complete equality of condition for all people; and anything in a Socialist direction which stops short of this is merely a compromise with the present condition of society, a halting-place on the road to the goal. This is the only logical outcome of any society which is other than a close company sustained by violence for the express purpose of 'the exploitation of man by man' in the interest of the strongest."

—William Morris, "Socialism and Anarchism," Commonweal (5 May 1889)
