Education

“Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.”

“It doesn’t mean that I advocate violence, but at the same time, I am not against using violence in self-defense.  I don’t call it violence when it’s self-defense.  I call it intelligence.”

Freedom

“You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.”

Politics

“A new world order is in the making, and it is up to us to prepare ourselves that we may take our rightful place in it.”
