“People in our country know that the glorious period in which they happen to live is one of sacrifice; they are familiar with sacrifice… Cuba is the vanguard of America and must make sacrifices because it occupies the post of advance guard, because it shows the masses of Latin America the road to full freedom. Within the country the leadership has to carry out its vanguard role. It must be said with all sincerity that in a real revolution, to which one gives his or her all and from which one expects no material reward, the task of the vanguard revolutionary is both magnificent and agonizing.” – Guevara in “Socialism and Man in Cuba”

-Socialism and Man in Cuba
