“The people who resent me do so because Im a woman, Im young, and Im a Bhutto. Well, the simple answer is, it doesnt matter that Im a woman, it doesnt matter that Im young, and its a matter of pride that Im a Bhutto.”
—Benazir Bhutto (b. 1953)
“The white man regards the universe as a gigantic machine hurtling through time and space to its final destruction: individuals in it are but tiny organisms with private lives that lead to private deaths: personal power, success and fame are the absolute measures of values, the things to live for. This outlook on life divides the universe into a host of individual little entities which cannot help being in constant conflict thereby hastening the approach of the hour of their final destruction.”
