“A woman has the right to run for election whether she’s male or female!”

“There is no state with a democracy except Libya on the whole planet.”

“Democracy means permanent rule”

“I am not such a dictator that I would shut down Facebook. I’ll merely imprison anyone who logs in to it.”

“There must be a revolution which puts to an end all materialistic conditions hindering woman from perfoming her natural role in life and driving her to carry out man’s duties in order to be equal in rights”

“(Abraham) Lincoln was a man who created himself from nothing without any help from outside or other people. I followed his struggles. I see certain similarities between him and me.”

“Muammar Gaddafi is not a president to resign, he does not even have a parliament to dissolve.”
