Favorite quotation by ASSK: "It is not easy for a people conditioned by fear under the iron rule of the principle that 'might is right' to free themselves from the enervating miasma of fear. Yet even under the most crushing state machinery courage rises up again and again, for fear is not the natural state of civilized man."
Favorite quotation about ASSK: "[Burma's] only weapons are words, reason, and the brave example of Aung San Suu Kyi. But these are fearful weapons to the ruling regime." - Bill Clinton. September 2000
