"By Working together as neighbors, by making use of the resources which can be brought to bear through programs of national development, of mutual help and of international assistance, we may face the future with confidence, secure in the knowledge that we can render a good account of our days and for our labors." (Selected Speeches of H.I.M. p.364)
"Ethiopians, have courage and brace yourselves up. Unless you improve your lot by the sweat of your brow nobody will shoulder your responsibilities. Provided that you pursue your task with unswerving dedication, We on Our part, shall do everything possible to assist you in your forward march." (Selected Speeches of H.I.M. p.457)
The Way Forward:
"The problems which confronts us today are, equally, unprecedented. They have no counterparts in human experience. Men search the pages of history for solutions, for precedents, but there is none.
This, then, is the ultimate challenge. Where are we to look for our survival, for the answers to the questions which have never before been posed?
We must look, first, to Almighty God, Who has raised man above the animals and endowed him with intelligence and reason. We must put our faith in HIM that He will not desert us or permit us to destroy humanity which He created in His image.
And we must look into ourselves, into the depth of our souls. We must become something we have never been and for which our education and experience and environment have ill-prepared us. We must become bigger than we have been: more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community. (Important Utterances of H.I.M. p. 471)
