“In this world there’s nothing new. These are the words of King Solomon, they date back to 3’000 years ago, but they are still valid. Someone has patience, but without will. Another has will, but without patience. If one unifies those two qualities, he will always reach where he should. We will reach the raising of the standard of life of the Nation. If, along the path, new problems will arise, we will face them with will and patience.”
H.I.M. Haile Selassie I
