[For Twenty-five Years I've Been Speaking And Writing In Defense Of Your Right To Happiness In This World, Condemning Your Inability To Take What Is Your Due, To Secure What You Won In Bloody Battles On The Barricades Of Paris And Vienna, In The American Civil War, In The Russian Revolution. Your Paris Ended With Petain And Laval, Your Vienna With Hitler, Your Russia With Stalin, And Your America May Well End In The Rule Of The Ku Klux Klan! You've Been More Successful In Winning Your Freedom Than In Securing It For Yourself And Others. This I Knew Long Ago. What I Did Not Understand Was Why Time And Again, After Fighting Your Way Out Of A Swamp, You Sank Into A Worse One. Then Groping And Cautiously Looking About Me, I Gradually Found Out What Has Enslaved You: YOUR SLAVE DRIVER IS YOU YOURSELF. No One Is To Blame For Your Slavery But You Yourself. No One Else, I Say!]

Quotes About Familiar Places

"A man is the history of his breaths and thoughts, acts, atoms and wounds, love indifference and dislike, also of his race and nation, the soil that fed him and his forbears, the stones and sands of his familiar places, long-silenced battles and struggles of conscience, of the smiles of girls and the slow utterance of old women, of accidents and the gradual action of inexorable law, of all this and something else, too, a single flame which in every way obeys the laws that pertain to Fire itself, and yet is lit and put out from one moment to the next, and can never be relumed in the whole waste of time to come." - Author: A.S. Byatt

Quotes About Bread Of Life

"Normal food is less strong than man, it serves him, is taken into mans body to be assimilated and to build it up. But this special food, the Eucharist, is above man and stronger than man. Consequently the whole process involved is reversed: the man who eats this bread is assimilated by it, taken into it; he is fused into this bread and becomes bread, like Christ himself. "Though many, we are one body, for we are one bread." The result of this insight is quite clear: Eucharist is never merely an event a deux, a dialogue between Christ and me. The goal of eucharistic communion is a total recasting of a persons life, breaking up a mans whole "I" and creating a new "We"." - Author: Pope Benedict XVI

Quotes About Comprendre

"Je peux exécrer ce shah, mais ce nest pas contre lui que je me bats. Triompher dun despote ne peut être le but ultime, je me bats pour que les Persans aient conscience dêtre des hommes libres, des fils dAdam, comme nous disons ici, quils aient foi en eux-mêmes, en leur force, quils retrouvent une place dans le monde daujourdhui. Cest ce que jai voulu réussir ici. Cette ville a rejeté la tutelle du monarque et des chefs religieux, elle a défié les Puissances, partout elle a suscité la solidarité et ladmiration des hommes de coeur. Les gens de Tabriz étaient sur le point de gagner, mais on ne veut pas les laisser gagner, on a trop peur de leur exemple, on veut les humilier, cette population fière devra se prosterner devant les soldats du tsar pour obtenir son pain. Toi qui es né libre dans un pays libre, tu devrais comprendre." - Author: Amin Maalouf
