Need a Che Guevara quote:

Pretending to be human
I wanted to make a character quote JFK's "those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."

However, I realized it would be much more appropriate for him to quote Che Guevara on something similar. But I am unable to find any, could someone help? And yes, I have already scoured the Wikiquotes page so please don't link that to me. Thanks.

EDIT: Okay, found a possibly good one. "Violence is not the monopoly of the exploiters and as such the exploited can use it too and, moreover, ought to use it when the moment arrives." Could this work?

My Sonic fanfic series.
Here are some I found:

“It is better to die standing than to live on your knees.“

“Let’s be realistic, demand the impossible!”

oh no the snack table
How about "The dictatorship tries to function without resorting to force so we must try to oblige it to do so, thereby unmasking its true nature as the dictatorship of the reactionary social classes"? It's also from Guerrilla Warfare: A Method.

It's beautiful and so full of deep imagery that it doesn't surprise me to find that it has gone WAY over your head
Sorry for bumping, but in case anyone else sees this, the quote of "die standing rather than living on your knees" is attributed to Emiliano Zapata and "let's be realistic, demand the impossible" is a slogan the French May (the 1968 French protests) created.
 
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
