Democracy is the destiny of humanity; freedom its indestructible arm.
As quoted by US President John F. Kennedy in a speech. (29 June 1962)
Entre los Individuos, como entre Las Naciones, El respeto al derecho ajeno es la paz.Benito Juárez
The government of the republic will fulfill its duty to defend its independence, to repel foreign aggression, and accept the struggle to which it has been provoked, counting on the unanimous spirit of the Mexicans and on the fact that sooner or later the cause of rights and justice will triumph.Benito Juárez
Adversity, Citizen Deputies, discourages none but contemptible peoples; ours has been ennobled by great feats and we are far from being shorn of the immense obstacles, material and moral, which the country will oppose…Benito Juárez
There is no help but in defense but I can assure you... the Imperial Government will not succeed in subduing the Mexicans, and its armies will not have a single day of peace... we must stop them, not only for our country but for the respect of the sovereignty of the nations.Benito Juárez
