"The aim of those leaders that is based on ambition for power and personal gain is one with no firm foundation and will, consequently, crumble easily." Selected Speeches of HIM Haile Selassie I, page 471
"For those of you who possess the land and labour but lack capital, We have made credit available at low interest. For those of you who have the necessary capital but do not possess land to work on, We have, in accordance with Our proclamation which entitled every Ethiopian to ownership of land, established offices in every province through which you may be able to acquire land. Those who have neither land nor money will be granted land and a financial loan at low interest. For those of you who possess land, who have financial resources and manpower, We have made experts available to furnish you with the necessary guidance and advice in your undertakings." Selected Speeches of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, page 486
"The longevity and tenacity of a building can be judged by its foundation." Selected Speeches of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, page 495
"Every structure must be built on a solid foundation, for those constructed otherwise would soon collapse. The proclamation by which We made land grants to the entire Ethiopian people is the foundation of this scheme. Recipients of land grants as well as those who had previously owned their own holdings do not by the mere owning of such land satisfy the requirements. They must make proper use of the land not only for their own benefit but as well to that of the people-- We shall not permit any land to lay fallow." Selected Speeches of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, page 487
"Man can only begin an enterprise, it is for God to dispose of it to a good end." Selected Speeches of HIM Haile Selassie I, page 391
