Emperor Haile Selassie Speaks

“No development in the modern world has been so startling as the revolution in communications. Man’s voice flashes around the earth in split seconds. Distance & time have been annihilated. Our people’s vigour and labour can bear fruit only when communication networks are afforded them.”

Emperor Haile Selassie

“That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned: That until there are no longer first-class and second class citizens of any nation; That until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes; That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race; That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained.”

Emperor Haile Selassie

“The temple of the most high begins with the human body, which houses our life, essence of our existence.”

Emperor Haile Selassie

“Spirituality is not theology or ideology. It is simple a way of life, pure and original as was given by the most high.”

Emperor Haile Selassie

“There is always something moving, brewing. There are ambitious people everywhere. Wicked people. The only thing to do is to deal with them with courage and decision. One must beware of uncertainty, weakness or conflicting emotions – they lead to defeat.”

Emperor Haile Selassie

“Peace is a day-to-day problem, the product of a multitude of events and judgements. Peace is not an ‘is’, it is a becoming”

Emperor Haile Selassie

That which man dreams of and to which he aspires unless fulfilled in his own lifetime, can produce no actual satisfaction to him. It will be self-deceiving and a waste of time to advocate dialogue with those who are not ready to listen because it is obvious that the freedom of millions is not a commodity subject to bargaining. It is better to die free than to live as slaves

Haile Selassie

The true leader is a different sort; he seeks effective activity which has a truly beneficent purpose. He inspires others to follow in his wake, and holding aloft the torch of wisdom, leads the way for society to realize its genuinely great aspirations.

Haile Selassie

The ultimate resource of a nation is its people. Unless this resource is employed for the benefit of the nation, unless the latent good which it represents is exploited to the maximum for the common good the nation will languish, poor in spirit, lacking in achievement.

Haile Selassie

Any who may wish to profit himself alone from the knowledge given him, rather than serve others through the knowledge he has gained from learning, is betraying knowledge and rendering it worthless.

Haile Selassie

Every laborer is a father, his labor is his child. Choose your project carefully and achieve it worthily.

Haile Selassie

It is much easier to show compassion to animals. They are never wicked.

Haile Selassie

It is both the duty and responsibility of the world’s fortunate few to help fulfill the legitimate aspirations of the unfortunate many.

Haile Selassie

Life is like the theatre – One mustn’t try to understand it all at once and immediately. It is no longer amusing.

Haile Selassie

There are good men and wicked. The former should be made use of and the latter punished, without attempting to understand why the ones are good and the others wicked

Haile Selassie

Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.
