Authors: Aung San Suu Kyi Quotes, Sayings
Even one voice can be heard loudly all over the world in this day and age.
Aung San Suu Kyi

Revered monks and people. This public rally is aimed at informing the whole world of the will of the people... Our purpose is to show that the entire people entertain the keenest desire for a multiparty democratic system of government.

Aung San Suu Kyi
First public speech 26 August 1988.

It is not power that corrupts but fear. Fear of losing power corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it.
Aung San Suu Kyi
Acceptance message for 1990 Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought 1991.

It would be difficult to dispel ignorance unless there is freedom to pursue the truth unfettered by fear.
Aung San Suu Kyi
Acceptance message for 1990 Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought 1991.

The quintessential revolution is that of the spirit, born of an intellectual conviction of the need for change in those mental attitudes and values which shape the course of a nation's development. A revolution which aims merely at changing official policies and institutions with a view to an improvement in material conditions has little chance of genuine success.
Aung San Suu Kyi
Acceptance message for 1990 Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought 1991.

Within a system which denies the existence of basic human rights, fear tends to be the order of the day. Fear of imprisonment, fear of torture, fear of death, fear of losing friends, family, property or means of livelihood, fear of poverty, fear of isolation, fear of failure. A most insidious form of fear is that which masquerades as common sense or even wisdom, condemning as foolish, reckless, insignificant or futile the small, daily acts of courage which help to preserve man's self-respect and inherent human dignity. 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.
Aung San Suu Kyi
Acceptance message for 1990 Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought 1991.

It is man's vision of a world fit for rational, civilized humanity which leads him to dare and to suffer to build societies free from want and fear. Concepts such as truth, justice and compassion cannot be dismissed as trite when these are often the only bulwarks which stand against ruthless power.
Aung San Suu Kyi
Acceptance message for 1990 Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought 1991.

Those of us who decided to work for democracy in Burma made our choice in the conviction that the danger of standing up for basic human rights in a repressive society was preferable to the safety of a quiescent life in servitude.
Aung San Suu Kyi
International Herald Tribune February 1997.

We have faith in the power to change what needs to be changed but we are under no illusion that the transition from dictatorship to liberal democracy will be easy, or that democratic government will mean the end of all our problems.
Aung San Suu Kyi
International Herald Tribune February 1997.

No matter the regime's physical power, in the end they can't stop the people; they can't stop freedom. We shall have our time.
Aung San Suu Kyi
Interview with British journalist John Pilger, during 2007 uprising that was brutally down by the military.

Our struggle for democracy is a struggle for our everyday life.
Aung San Suu Kyi

The people of Burma are like prisoners in their own country, deprived of all freedom under military rule.
Aung San Suu Kyi

I think I should be active politically. Because I look upon myself as a politician. That's not a dirty work you know. Some people think that there are something wrong with politicians. Of course, something wrong with some politicians.
Aung San Suu Kyi

You can never separate the political system of a country from the way you conduct your daily life.
Aung San Suu Kyi

The value systems of those with access to power and of those far removed from such access cannot be the same. The viewpoint of the privileged is unlike that of the underprivileged.
Aung San Suu Kyi
