Inscription(s)

Crezcan como buenos revolucionarios.
Estudien mucho para poder dominar la
técnica que permite dominar la naturaleza.
Acuerdense que la Revolución es lo
importante y que cada uno de nosotros, solo,
no vale nada. Sobre todo, sean capaces de
sentir en lo más hondo cualquier injusticia
cometida contra cualquier parte del mundo,
es la cualidad más linda de un revolucionario.

(Carta del Ché a sus hijos)

Grow up as good revolutionaries.
Study hard so that you can master
technology, which allows us to master nature.
Remember that the revolution is what
is important, and each one of us, alone
is worth nothing. Above all, always be capable
of feeling deeply any injustice
committed against anyone, anywhere in the world.
This is the most beautiful quality in a revolutionary.

(Letter by Ché to his children)
