My youth passed at the time of the country’s reconstruction from the ruins and ashes of the war in which my nation never bowed to the enemy paying the highest price in the struggle.
My health is very much improved.
Lying at the root of the social agreements of 1980 are the courage sense of responsibility and the solidarity of the working people. Both sides have then recognized that an accord must be reached if bloodshed is to be prevented.
I want to light the lights of patriotism.
I hope to work harder than ever to help people around the world.
I got politics and economics moving and then others took over.
I belong to a nation which over the past centuries has experienced many hardships and reverses. The world reacted with silence or with mere sympathy when Polish frontiers were crossed by invading armies and the sovereign state had to succumb to brutal force.
I belong to the generation of workers who born in the villages and hamlets of rural Poland had the opportunity to acquire education and find employment in industry becoming in the course conscious of their rights and importance in society.
Freedom must be gained step by step slowly. Freedom is a food which must be carefully administered when people are too hungry for it.
Dictators and oppressors should continue to fear me because I will be here for a long time.
