“Such an extraordinarily beautiful revolution, like the social revolutions that brought the working class and peasants to power, and which began the road, the great and glorious road.  For that reason they will always be immortal, for that reason the youth must always look towards Marx, towards Engels, towards Lenin…”

“Viet Nam is a most cherished name too close to the hearts of all Cubans. To all of us Viet Nam has been an example to follow and an incentive in our struggle.  The Cuban people is very much aware of the extraordinary role played by the people of Viet Nam within the world’s revolutionary movement and in people’s liberation struggles.  Viet Nam has taught an unforgettable lesson to all the exploited and oppressed peoples.  No liberation movement, none of the peoples that have struggled for their independence have had to wage a struggle as prolonged and heroic as that waged by the people of Viet Nam.”
References to the original: September 12, 1973 – During a reception hosted by the Workers’ Party of Viet Nam and the government of the Democratic Republic of Viet Nam on the occasion of Fidel’s visit to that country, he expressed:
