„There was more vindictiveness shown to me by the Virginia people for my voting for Grant than the North showed to me for fighting four years against him.“

„A people who have courageously opposed French domination for more than eighty years, a people who have fought side by side with the Allies against the Fascists during these last years, such a people must be free and independent.“

—  Ho Chi Minh Vietnamese communist leader and first president of Vietnam 1890 - 1969

Contexto: A people who have courageously opposed French domination for more than eighty years, a people who have fought side by side with the Allies against the Fascists during these last years, such a people must be free and independent.
For these reasons, we, members of the Provisional Government of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, solemnly declare to the world that Vietnam has the right to be a free and independent country and in fact it already has been so. The entire Vietnamese people are determined to mobilise all their physical and mental strength, to sacrifice their lives and property in order to safeguard their independence and liberty.

„If there were four or five people like me, that would change the whole dynamic.“

As quoted "King Returns: Ex-Gov. Fights For Snowe's Senate Seat" by Susan Sharon at NPR (14 March 2012) http://www.npr.org/2012/03/14/148604276/king-returns-ex-gov-fights-for-snowes-senate-seat
Contexto: I don't have any illusions that I'm naively going to go down and Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell are going to say, "Angus, tell us how to do this." I mean, I know that's not going to work. But I think, No. 1, my election would send a significant message and, No. 2, it might provoke similar movements in other states. If there were four or five people like me, that would change the whole dynamic.
