„Nemůžu posoudit, co tato žena znamená pro svět, ale můžu vám říct, co znamená pro mě. Je to její nenásilný postoj, který je pro mě tak působivý. —Bono“

„V dobách mého domácího věznění mi připadalo, že už nejsem součástí skutečného světa. Udělení Nobelovy ceny za mír ze mě zase udělalo skutečnou osobu.“


„Se Su Ťij máte dojem, že mír není jenom absence války kolem nás, ale spíš že mír je absence války v nás. —Bono“

„The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear“

„In societies where men are truly confident of their own worth, women are not merely tolerated but valued."

(From a speech read on video on August 31, 1995 before the NGO Forum on Women, Beijing, China)“

„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.“ Freedom from Fear

„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.“ Freedom from Fear

„If you're feeling helpless, help someone.“


„You should never let your fears prevent you from doing what you know is right.“

„To view the opposition as dangerous is to misunderstand the basic concepts of democracy. To oppress the opposition is to assault the very foundation of democracy.“ Letters from Burma

„It is not power that corrupts but fear.“

„Government leaders are amazing. So often it seems they are the last to know what the people want.“


„Fear is a habit; I am not afraid.“

„We will surely get to our destination if we join hands.“

„I don't believe in people just hoping. We work for what we want. I always say that one has no right to hope without endeavor, so we work to try and bring about the situation that is necessary for the country, and we are confident that we will get to the negotiation table at one time or another.“

„Please use your liberty to promote ours“
