A Communist should have largeness of mind and he should be staunch and active, looking upon the interests of the revolution as his very life and subordinating his personal interests to those of the revolution; always and everywhere he should adhere to principle and wage a tireless struggle against all incorrect ideas and actions, so as to consolidate the collective life of the Party and strengthen the ties between the Party and the masses; he should be more concerned about the Party and the masses than about any private person, and more concerned about others than about himself. Only thus can he be considered a Communist.
Assata Shakur, revolutionary activist living in exile in Cuba
"Always remember not only have Black Panther Party members suffered long years in prison, like Herman Wallace, Geronimo Pratt, and others, but also, years of self exile like Assata Shakur, Captain Bill Brent who died in Cuba, and Kansas City Captain Pete O’Neil. We have sacrificed much for the people and their struggle for liberation." - General Houston
