Lech Walesa

Leader of Solidarity movement and eventual President of Poland


I must tell you that the supply of words on the world market is plentiful, but the demand is falling.

1989 - Speech to the U.S. Congress
Our souls contain exactly the contrary of what [the communists] wanted. They wanted us not to believe in God, and our churches are full. They wanted us to be materialistic and incapable of sacrifices; we are anti-materialistic, capable of sacrifice. They wanted us to be afraid of the tanks, of the guns, and instead we don't fear them at all.

from an interview published in the Washington Post
