„Demokracie bez veřejné informovanosti neexistuje a existovat nemůže.“

„Polopravda je horší než lež.“


„Demokracie je zákonnost, přísné dodržování zákonů jak mocenskými orgány a organizacemi, tak i všemi občany.“

„V nebezpečí je ten, kdo nereaguje na běh událostí.“ Kdo přijde pozdě, toho život potrestá.

„Jsem nenapravitelný optimista, dokonce i když se říká: chaos, chaos, chaos, rozpad, rozpad.“

„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.“

„If what you have done yesterday still looks big to you, you haven't done much today.“

„The most puzzling development in politics during the last decade is the apparent determination of Western European leaders to re-create the Soviet Union in Western Europe.“


„I believe in the cosmos. All of us are linked to the cosmos. So nature is my god. To me, nature is sacred. Trees are my temples and forests are my cathedrals. Being at one with nature.“

„I believe in the cosmos. All of us are linked to the cosmos.“

„Peace is not unity in similarity but unity in diversity, in the comparison and conciliation of differences.“

„We had 10 years after the Cold War to build a new world order and yet we squandered them. The United States cannot tolerate anyone acting independently. Every US president has to have a war.“


„One day we took each other by the hand and went for a walk in the evening. And we walked like that for our whole life.“

„Life is much richer and more complex than even the most perfect plans to make it better. It ultimately takes vengeance for attempts to impose abstract schemes, even with the best of intentions. Perestroika has made us understand this about our past, and the actual experience of recent years has taught us to reckon with the most general laws of civilization.“

„Americans have a severe disease — worse than AIDS. It's called the winner's complex.“

„We have retreated from the perennial values. I don't think that we need any new values. The most important thing is to try to revive the universally known values from which we have retreated.
As a young man, I really took to heart the Communist ideals. A young soul certainly cannot reject things like justice and equality. These were the goals proclaimed by the Communists. But in reality that terrible Communist experiment brought about repression of human dignity. Violence was used in order to impose that model on society. In the name of Communism we abandoned basic human values. So when I came to power in Russia I started to restore those values; values of "openness" and freedom.“
