Reach your ambition as high as the skies. Dream it as high as the skies. Because if you fall, you're going to fall among the stars.
Sukarno's most famous quote, he said it the first time in front of BPUPKI congress, April 291945
Independence can only be obtained and secured by a nation that has its spirit raging with determination: "independence or death"!
In my political outlook, I'm nationalist. In my social outlook, I'm socialist. In my religious outlook, I'm completely theist. That I am! I'm not a communist, not at all satellite of any other "-ism" in the world. I'm just pro-Indonesia. I'll fight and work and sacrifice myself for this Indonesian people, this Indonesian fatherland of mine.
It was [the concept of] nationalism that Indonesia was established on. Not the Javanese, not the Sumatran, not the Bornean, Sulawesi, Bali or others, but the Indonesian, that together became the foundation of one nationale staat (nation-state).
This country, the Republic of Indonesia, does not belong to any group, nor to any religion, nor to any ethnic group, nor to any group with customs and traditions, but the property of all of us from Sabang to Merauke.
They, OLDEFO (Old Established Forces), carry out l'exploitation de l'homme par 'homme (the exploitation of man by man). Do not let them live, so that there's no colonialism anymore in the world.
Speech in front of Indonesian people at Indonesian Independence Day August 17, 1965. OLDEFO stands for Old Established Order, it's a term from him who refers to West Block in Cold War (1945-1992). Sometimes, he called them as Nekolim (Neo-Imperialisme dan Kolonialisme ==> Neo-Imperialism and Colonialism), such as USA, UK, NATO, and so on. The opposite of OLDEFO is NEFO.
Learning without thinking is useless, but thinking without learning is very dangerous.
Speech at Independence Day August 17, 1961 "'Djarek (Djalannja Revolusi Kita) Bagaikan Malaikat Turun Dari Langit"
Do good to another man, even when they do not do you good; another will certainly do you good. if there is still shame and fear in one's heart to do good, there will certainly be no progress at all.
Speech at Independence Day August 17, 1961 "Djarek (Djalannja Revolusi Kita) Bagaikan Malaikat Turun Dari Langit"
A thousand old men can only dream, but a young man is able to change the world.
From a book of his own work when he was imprisoned by Dutch-East Indies Government, "Indonesia Menggugat!" (Indonesians Accuse!)
We liberate our nation's heart inside of Indonesian independence!! Ibn Saud liberated Arabian's heart inside of Saudi Arabian independence one by one!! Stalin liberated Soviet-Russian's heart inside of Soviet one by one!!
I am not solely nationalist. I am not solely religious. I am not solely socialist. I am a distillation of these three concepts. In my political outlook, I am nationalist. In my religious outlook, I am completely theist. I say, believing in God. In my social outlook, I am socialist. That I am. I am not a communist. I am not at all satellite of any other "ism" in the world. I am solely pro-Indonesia. I will work and fight and sacrifice myself for this Indonesian people, this Indonesian fatherland of mine.
