​Che Guevara

The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall.

Silence is argument carried out by other means.

I know you are here to kill me. Shoot, coward, you are only going to kill a man.

If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine.

Many will call me an adventurer – and that I am, only one of a different sort: one of those who risks his skin to prove his platitudes.

Cruel leaders are replaced only to have new leaders turn cruel.

I am not a liberator. Liberators do not exist. The people liberate themselves.

Whenever death may surprise us, let it be welcome if our battle cry has reached even one receptive ear and another hand reaches out to take up our arms.

We cannot be sure of having something to live for unless we are willing to die for it.

The true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality.

I don’t care if I fall as long as someone else picks up my gun and keeps on shooting.
