„If I was not fighting against child labor, I don't know what else I could do. It was always in my heart, I could not live without that“

—  Kailash Satyarthi Indian children's rights activist 1954

As quoted in "Person of the Week: Kailash Satyarthi" by Peter Jennings, at ABC News (14 May 2004) http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/PersonOfWeek/story?id=131826&page=1
Contexto: If I was not fighting against child labor, I don't know what else I could do. It was always in my heart, I could not live without that … It's really a kind of spiritual feeling which is difficult to explain … And the smiles come on the face of the children when they realize that they are free. … When you are living in a globalized economy and a globalized world, you cannot live in isolation, all the problems and solutions are interconnected, and so the problem of child labor in any part of the world is your problem. … The world should have one thing in mind — if the children are exploited in any part of the world, if the children are deprived of their childhood in any part of the world, the world cannot live in peace … The world cannot be human.
