- War is
not solely past, it can be our future, and these are you,
ladies and gentlemen deputies, who are the guardians of our
peace, our security and our future.
Mitterrand # War,
is delighted at this new opportunity to show the world that
when one has the will one can succeed in joining peoples who
have been brought close by history.
Mitterrand # Opportunity,
- A man
loses contact with reality if he is not surrounded by his
Mitterrand # Loss,
- I loved
this country where everyone greets passers-by and opens his
door wide. Looking at America, every voyager has the eyes
of Christopher Columbus.
Mitterrand # Love,
- The industrialized
countries need the economic recovery of the Third World, need
these billions of human beings, potential buyers of our products.
This is not only a generous attitude, it is a self-serving
Mitterrand # Economic,
is born out of misery, and if the West does not show more
understanding, those people will take up arms and turn to
others, that is the Soviet Union.
Mitterrand # Communism,
each nation is undergoing a crisis, they all tend toward egotism.
Each country first wants to rescue itself, whereas they will
only be rescued together.
Mitterrand # Crisis,
- I am
the way I am, and I have no need to evolve in order to affirm
Mitterrand # Confident
is a struggle, everything requires courage, effort. There
is no response to history without effort, and effort is required
because everything is difficult: passions, interests, rivalries,
mankind just emerging from prehistory. Just look around us.
Yes, history is tragic.
Mitterrand # Challenging,
- I was
born during one world war, and when I was 20, I fought in
a second world war. I was young at a time when Hitler, Mussolini,
Franco, Salazar, Stalin and a few others were on European
soil. All that passes under our eyes proves that we do not
live in a peaceful and harmonious world.
Mitterrand # War,
