Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz je bývalý kubánsky právnik a revolucionár, dlhoročný politický líder a bývalý prezident Kuby. Vládol v tomto štáte nepretržite od roku 1959, keď jeho revolučné hnutie zosadilo vládu Fulgencia Batistu a vytvorilo na Kube prvý komunistický štát na západnej pologuli, až do roku 2008, keď sa z vlastnej vôle odmietol uchádzať o post prezidenta na nasledujúce volebné obdobie. 19. februára 2008 Fidel Castro oznámil, že sa už nebude uchádzať o úrad prezidenta a hlavného veliteľa armády a ako svojho nástupcu odporučil svojho brata Raúla Castra. Castro patril medzi najdlhšie pôsobiace hlavy štátu na svete. Hoci sa Fidel Castro v apríli 2011 vzdal aj svojho posledného postu Prvého tajomníka Komunistickej strany Kuby a vystúpil aj z Ústredného výboru strany, stále je považovaný za najvplyvnejšieho muža krajiny.

„After a week, I decided religion wasn't for me.“

— Fidel Castro
Context: When I was a young boy, my father taught me that to be a good Catholic, I had to confess at church if I ever had impure thoughts about a girl. That very evening, I had to rush to confess my sin. And the next night, and the next. After a week, I decided religion wasn't for me. As quoted in The Atheist's Bible (2007) edited by Joan Konner, p. 62

„Man is born egotistical, a result of the conditioning of nature. Nature fills us with instincts; it is education that fills us with virtues.“

— Fidel Castro
Context: Man is born egotistical, a result of the conditioning of nature. Nature fills us with instincts; it is education that fills us with virtues. Nature makes us do things instinctively; one of these is the instinct for survival which can lead to infamy, while on the other side, our conscience can lead us to great acts of heroism. It doesn’t matter what each one of us is like, how different we are from each other, but when we unite we become one. It is amazing that in spite of the differences between human beings, they can become as one in a single instant or they can be millions, and they can be a million strong just through their ideas. Nobody followed the Revolution as a cult to anyone or because they felt personal sympathy with any one person. It is only by embracing certain values and ideas that an entire people can develop the same willingness to make sacrifices of any one of those who loyally and sincerely try to lead them toward their destiny.

„Here is a conclusion I’ve come to after many years: among all the errors we may have committed, the greatest of them all was that we believed that someone really knew something about socialism, or that someone actually knew how to build socialism.“

— Fidel Castro
Context: Here is a conclusion I’ve come to after many years: among all the errors we may have committed, the greatest of them all was that we believed that someone really knew something about socialism, or that someone actually knew how to build socialism. It seemed to be a sure fact, as well-known as the electrical system conceived by those who thought they were experts in electrical systems. Whenever they said: “That’s the formula”, we thought they knew. Just as if someone is a physician. You are not going to debate anemia, or intestinal problems, or any other condition with a physician; nobody argues with the physician. You can think that he is a good doctor or a bad one, you can follow his advice or not, but you won’t argue with him. Which of us would argue with a doctor, or a mathematician, or a historian, or an expert in literature or in any other subject? But we must be idiots if we think, for example, that economy is an exact and eternal science and that it existed since the days of Adam and Eve, and I offer my apologies to the thousands of economists in our country.

„Capitalism—and I say it with such gusto—capitalism is so obsolete that it is dying by itself.“

— Fidel Castro
Context: Let us yield a bit. Let us grant socialism a few more years. Socialism is so obsolete, it is dying by itself.… Did I say socialism? I assure you on my honor this was not a mental slip. This was a slip of the tongue. Do not forget that. Capitalism—and I say it with such gusto—capitalism is so obsolete that it is dying by itself.

„Revolution is the sense of the historical moment; it is changing everything that must be changed“

— Fidel Castro
Context: Revolution is the sense of the historical moment; it is changing everything that must be changed; it is full equality and freedom; it is being treated and treating others like human beings; it is emancipating ourselves, by ourselves and with our very own efforts; it is challenging the dominant powerful forces within and outside of the social and national arena; it is defending the values one believes in at the cost of any sacrifice; it is modesty, selflessness, altruism, solidarity and heroism; it is fighting with audacity, intelligence and realism; it is never telling a lie or violating ethical principles; it is the profound conviction that there is no force on earth that can crush truth and ideas. Revolution is unity, it is independence, it is fighting for our dreams of justice for Cuba and the world that is the basis of our patriotism, our socialism and our internationalism. As quoted in [http://www.fidelcastro.cu/en/discursos/speech-mass-rally-called-cuban-youths-students-and-workers-revolution-square-occasion Speech by Dr. Fidel Castro Ruz, President of the Republic of Cuba, at the mass rally called by the Cuban youths, students and workers on the occasion of the International Labor Day at the Revolution Square] (May 1, 2000)
