Culture, which makes talent shine, is not completely ours either, nor can we place it solely at our disposal. Rather, it belongs mainly to our country, which gave it to us, and to humanity, from which we receive it as a birthright.
To give one’s life is a right only when one gives it unselfishly.
Mountains culminate in peaks, and nations in men.
Men are like the stars; some generate their own light while others reflect the brilliance they receive.
Peoples are made of hate and of love, and more of hate than love.
Men of action, above all those whose actions are guided by love, live forever.
We light the oven so that everyone may bake bread in it.
Perhaps the enemies of liberty are such only because they judge it by its loud voice.
It is a sin not to do what one is capable of doing.
An insatiable appetite for glory leads to sacrifice and death, but innate instinct leads to self-preservation and life.
