On the Anniversay of his Birth / Rebeca Monzo

Oil painting by Caridad Monzo

Man loves liberty, even is his soul doesn’t know it, and will push for it and flee from where it is not.

A village is made up of men who resist, and men who push: of accommodation, which captures, and justice, which rebels: of arrogance which subjects and depresses, and of decorum, which does not deprive pride of its position, nor cede its own: of the rights and opinions of all its children which comprise a people, and not of the rights and opinions of a single class of its children.

To all our Cuban brothers and sisters wherever you may be.
