Fidel Castro quotes

  1. Condemn me, it does not matter: history will absolve me.
  2. A revolution is not a trail of roses.... A revolution is a fight to the death between the future and the past.
  3. I am not a dictator, and I do not think I will become one. I will not maintain power with a machine gun.
  4. I am a Marxist-Leninist, and I will be a Marxist-Leninist until the last days of my life.
  5. We have a theoretical concept of the Revolution which is a dictatorship of the exploited against the exploiters.
  6. Ideas do not need weapons, to the extent that they can convince the great masses.
  7. They talk about the failure of socialism but where is the success of capitalism in Africa, Asia and Latin America?
  8. I find capitalism repugnant. It is filthy, it is gross, it is alienating... because it causes war, hypocrisy and competition.
  9. North Americans don't understand... that our country is not just Cuba; our country is also humanity.
  10. Sorry, I'm still a dialectical materialist.
  11. Homeland or death! Socialism or death! We shall overcome!
