Raisa Gorbachev

  • ... the maltreatment of the natural world and its impoverishment leads to the impoverishment of the human soul. It is related to the outburst of violence in human society. To save the natural world today means to save what is human in humanity.

  • In our family we have always had, and still have, this understanding: the problem of each member of the family is everybody's problem.

  • Youth is, after all, just a moment, but it is the moment, the spark that you always carry in your heart.

  • A sociologist without an archive is like a person without a memory.

  • I am convinced that hypocrisy, the lie, is the true sister of evil, intolerance and cruelty.

  • Nationalism and extremism ... are spreading today like a cancerous growth in the fabric of people's national self-awareness.

  • Culture is both an intellectual phenomenon and a moral one.

  • ... no war, not even to punish an aggressor, is a good thing. Today people must learn to take into account each others' interests, if only for the sake of their own survival. I do not believe that, in this system of coordinates, the point where politics and simple human morality intersect is only idealism.

  • The calamity of war, wherever, whenever and upon whomever it descends, is a tragedy for the whole of humanity.
