Fidel Castro ( 1926 - 2016 ), revolutionary, Cuban President, lawyer: "They talk about the failure of socialism but where is the success of capitalism in Africa, Asia, and Latin America?...I find capitalism repugnant. It is filthy, it is gross, it is alienating... because it causes war, hypocrisy, and competition...I am a Marxist Leninist and I will be one until the last day of my life...Men do not shape destiny, Destiny produces the man for the hour."
Alfred Hitchcock ( 1899 - 1980 ), English filmaker: "There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it...Always make the audience suffer as much as possible...Fear isn't so difficult to understand. After all, weren't we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday. It's just a different wolf. This fright complex is rooted in every individual."
