Quote from Reith Lecture 2011
by Aung San Suu Kyi
"Fear is the first adversary we have to get past when we set out to battle for freedom, and often it is the one that remains until the very end. But freedom from fear does not have to be complete. It only has to be sufficient to enable us to carry on; and to carry on in spite of fear requires tremendous courage…The universal human aspiration to be free has been brought home to us by the stirring developments in the Middle East…"
