When people talk to me about tyranny, it makes me laugh and gives me the impression that people suffer from amnesia.— Jean-Claude Duvalier
The most romantic Jean-Claude Duvalier quotes that are free to learn and impress others
I am currently in Haiti to help the Haitian people in their reconstruction.
I want to take this opportunity to express, one more time, my deep sadness to those countrymen who feel, rightly, that they were victims of my government.
People of Haiti, I am the heir to the political philosophy, the doctrine and the revolution which my late father incarnated as president-for-life [and] I have decided to continue his work with the same fierce energy and the same intransigence.
In 25 years of exile, I've never had a frozen account, either in Switzerland or elsewhere in the world.
It is the destiny of the people of Haiti to suffer.
I never had the financial means that the media said I had.
I laugh when I hear the amounts, $400 million, $800 million. Where do they get this imagination?
All I know is politics. Really, politics takes up most of my time; it's nonstop.
There has not been one day since I left that I have not thought about Haiti.
