Un Hombre Sincero
Performance in Berlin
Yo quiero salir del mundoPor la puerta natural:En un carro de hojas verdesA morir me han de llevar. No me pongan en lo oscuroA morir como un traidor;Yo soy bueno, y como buenoMoriré de cara al Sol!

Un Hombre Sincero

Performance in Berlin

Yo quiero salir del mundo
Por la puerta natural:
En un carro de hojas verdes
A morir me han de llevar. 
No me pongan en lo oscuro
A morir como un traidor;
Yo soy bueno, y como bueno
Moriré de cara al Sol!

Nicaragua: July 19, 1980

"As some of you said recently, the best, most fundamental, and most decisive aid you can bring to the revolutionary movements is your example—because people are like volcanoes: no one sets fire to them; they explode by themselves.

[Applause]

And Central America and the Andean Range are volcanic.”

Miami, the exiles, and the Bacardis

"Over four decades, Cuban exile leaders in south Florida such as Diaz-Balart—not to mention Pepín Bosch and other Bacardi players—had repeatedly misjudged conditions in Cuba and made erroneous predictions. It was an indication of the power of wishful thinking, of how much more Cuba had changed than they realized, and of the vast gap between the experience of exile in south Florida and the reality of life on the island."
