Speech of Indian President Kovind on occasion of Lokarpan Ceremony of New Iskcon Temple-14/06/2022

You cannot mention the Bhagavad Gita and not think of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the Founder-Acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.

India’s national speech is Hindi and it will be an international speech : Gandhi in Inter-Asian Relations Conference (02/04/1947)

Our national speech is Hindustani. I know that it will be a long time before it can be made into an international speech. For international commerce, undoubtedly, English occupies the first place.

Execution of Judgments Concerning Constitutional Complaints and Their Effects – Speech by Prof. Dr. Zühtü Arslan-Constitutional Court of Turkey-25/04/2016

The justice is the basis of the State and so is the law that of justice. The law is a vital need of every society like bread, water or air that we breathe.

Against the war – Benito Mussolini (1912)

But let's go back to the war. War of peoples? But no; peoples suffer it. No one is allowed to say that the peoples applaud the watchful robbery of governments. When were they ever questioned about their willingness to go and kill or die? There are millions and millions of men who live a purely economic life: they eat, drink, reproduce; but all that is civil, political, cultural life is completely unknown to them. They do not even have in embryo a principle of moral autonomy: this is the flock that undergoes war and goes to the slaughter without even asking why.
