"Revolution is necessarily inspired in justice and carries with it the aspiration for justice that every honest man has in his heart."

"The revolution benefits the poor, the ignorant, who all his life has been a slave, the unfortunate who do not even know if they are is because the rich gold becomes tears, sweat and blood of the poor in gold. "

"Is it fair to leave their country in these solemn moments that will need all the devotion of his sons to save her humble, to not let her fall back into the hands of their eternal bearers and executioners, the chiefs ? "

"How beautiful is the revolution, even in his own barbarism!"
