Quotes from Aung San Suu Kyi

"I don't believe in people just hoping. We work for what we want. I always say that one has no right to hope without endeavor, so we work to try and bring about the situation that is necessary for the country."
—TIME, Nov. 15, 1999

—From her book, "Freedom From Fear," published in 1991

"The concept of driving somebody out of their own country is totally unacceptable to me. They have tried to pressure me to leave the country in ways that no self-respecting Government should try."
—New York Times, Feb. 15, 1994

"Whatever they do to me, that's between them and me; I can take it. What's more important is what they are doing to the country."
—New York Times, Feb. 15, 1994

"I think corporations should give more attention to this suffering and should wait to invest until there is a responsible government in Burma. I do not think it is a good idea to separate economics from politics; in fact, I do not think economics can be separated from politics."
—The Progressive, March 1997
