„Myslím, že kampaň proti alkoholu byla přece jen chybná v tom, jakým způsobem se prováděla. Týká se to zavírání obchodů, zejména v Moskvě. Velkých front. Růstu výroby samohonek. Zmizení cukru z obchodů. Bylo třeba ne provádět kampaň, ale vést plánovaný dlouhodobý boj proti alkoholismu.“

„During the last six years we have discarded and destroyed much that stood in the way of a renewal and transformation of our society.“
Nobel Address (1991)
Kontext: During the last six years we have discarded and destroyed much that stood in the way of a renewal and transformation of our society. But when society was given freedom it could not recognize itself, for it had lived too long, as it were, "beyond the looking glass". Contradictions and vices rose to the surface, and even blood has been shed, although we have been able to avoid a bloodbath. The logic of reform has clashed with the logic of rejection, and with the logic of impatience which breeds intolerance.
Speech to the UN General Assembly (7 December 1988)
Kontext: We are witnessing most profound social change. Whether in the East or the South, the West or the North, hundreds of millions of people, new nations and states, new public movements and ideologies have moved to the forefront of history. Broad-based and frequently turbulent popular movements have given expression, in a multidimensional and contradictory way, to a longing for independence, democracy and social justice. The idea of democratizing the entire world order has become a powerful socio-political force. At the same time, the scientific and technological revolution has turned many economic, food, energy, environmental, information and population problems, which only recently we treated as national or regional ones, into global problems. Thanks to the advances in mass media and means of transportation, the world seems to have become more visible and tangible. International communication has become easier than ever before.
„Certain people in the United States are driving nails into this structure of our relationship, then cutting off the heads.“
As quoted in TIME magazine (9 September 1985)
Kontext: Certain people in the United States are driving nails into this structure of our relationship, then cutting off the heads. So the Soviets must use their teeth to pull them out.
"Nature Is My God" - interview with Fred Matser in Resurgence No. 184 (September-October 1997)
Kontext: I believe in the cosmos. All of us are linked to the cosmos. Look at the sun. If there is no sun, then we cannot exist. So nature is my god. To me, nature is sacred. Trees are my temples and forests are my cathedrals.
