Happy birthday, Che Guevara: Take a look at his top 5 best quotes

His name is synonymous with revolution. Indeed, Che Guevara is one of the strongest figures in new world history. He just could not take the plight of the poor in his native continent, South America – and decided to do something about it. He frequently held guerilla campaigns against the governments and their brutality. Though he was executed while doing his good work, he is still remembered and revered all over the world. Take a look at some of his best quotes, here are the top 5.

1.  I know you are here to kill me. Shoot, coward, you are only going to kill a man.

2.  Silence is argument carried out by other means.

3.  Whenever death may surprise us, let it be welcome if our battle cry has reached even one receptive ear and another hand reaches out to take up our arms.

4.  I don’t care if I fall as long as someone else picks up my gun and keeps on shooting.

5.  Many will call me an adventurer – and that I am, only one of a different sort: one of those who risks his skin to prove his platitudes.
