My greatest strength is the love for my people, my greatest weakness is that I love them too much.
Interview with Sir David Frost on the BBC, 1972.
The people of East Pakistan will owe it to the million who have died in the cyclone to make the supreme sacrifice of another million lives, if need be, so that we can live as a free people.Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
In a sense, Sheikh Mujib is a greater leader than George Washington, Mahatma Gandhi and De Valera.Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
I have given you independence, now go and preserve it.Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
I am happy with my Bangladesh.Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
The appearence of Sheikh Mujib was the biggest event in the national history of Bangladesh. His burial did not take place through his death. More pragmatic, efficient, capable and dyanmic political personalities than Sheikh Mujibur Rahman might have emerged or may emerge, but it will be very difficult to find someone who has contributed more to the independence movement of Bangladesh and the shaping of its national identity.Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
As long as Padma, Meghna, Gouri, Jamuna flows on, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, your accomplishment will also live on.Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
You know, they can't keep me here for more than six months.Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
Anyone who wishes to stay in Bangladesh will have to talk to Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
Yes, but there is a difference. You see, I am a very poor sheikh.Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
Poet of PoliticsSheikh Mujibur Rahman
A man of vitality and vehemence, Mujib became the political Gandhi of the Bengalis, symbolizing their hopes and voicing their grievances. Not even Pakistan's founder, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, drew the million-strong throngs that Mujib has attracted in Dacca. Nor, for that matter, has any subcontinent politician since Gandhi's day spent so much time behind bars for his political beliefs.Sheikh Mujibur Rahman
