"...If our generation happens to be too weak to establish Socialism over the earth, we will hand the spotless banner down to our children. The struggle which is in the offing transcends by far the importance of individuals, factions and parties. It is the struggle for the future of mankind. It will be severe, it will be lengthy. Whoever seeks physical comfort and spiritual clam let him step aside. In time of reaction it is more convenient to lean on the bureaucracy than on the truth. But all those for whom the word Socialism is not a hollow sound bu the content of their morel life - forward!
"Neither threats nor persecutions nor violations can stop us! Be it even over our bleaching bones, the truth will triumph! We will blaze the trail for it. It will conquer! Under all the severe blows of fate, I shall be happy as in the best days of my youth; because my friend, the highest human happiness is not the exploitation of the present bu the preparation of the future."
