In this must-watch video, some great Ethiopians narrate how Emperor Haile-Selassie was fighting to his best to modernize Ethiopia.
Other quotes from Haile Selassie:
Do not worship me, I am not God. I'm only a man. I worship Jesus Christ.
Peace demands the united efforts of us all. Who can foresee what spark might ignite the fuse?
Outside the kingdom of the Lord there is no nation which is greater than any other. God and history will remember your judgment.
We must become bigger than we have been: more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.
