"Change does not come on thoughts alone; because we have a revolutionary ideology and give speeches on it.


It comes because you can change the material conditions of people, and get people to assist in the change, be the mainstay of the change in their conditions.


One is not always happy when one is good; but one is always good when one is happy.”

~ Chokwe Lumumba
