German term or phrase: \'Ich nenne Revolution die Verwandlung.....
I've been trying to find this quote by Karl Marx in English. Can anybody help?

'Ich nenne Revolution die Verwandlung aller Herzen und Erhebung aller Haende im Namen der Ehre des Menschen'.

Thank you!

English translation:I call the revolution a transition in all hearts ...
Explanation:
I cannot find an exact translation of this sentence.

"Socialism cannot come into existence without revolution. For the birth of socialism to take place the old order must die. This requires, according to Marx, the overthrow of the existing ruling power, which he defines as revolution."

This is a quote from: http://www.uta.edu/english/cgb/marx/terms.html
which gives feedback on the type of language and defintions used in translations of Marxs' works.

HTH!
