"I do not want anyone to conclude that I have given up hope for our representative democracy; I have not, or I would not be where I am. It is because I value the idea so much that I am often keenly disappointed byt the reality." --pg.64

"I told them that no one has a right to call himself a leader unless he dares to lead. That means standing up to be counted on the side of his people, even at the risk of his political security."--pg.127

"My role, I think, is more that of a catalyst. By verbalizing what is wrong, by trying to strip off the masks that make people comfortable in the midst of chaos, perhaps I can help get things moving."--pg.171-72 ( )
