Top Ten Malala Yousafzai Quotes


The Top Ten

1 I speak not for myself but for those without voice... those who have fought for their rights... their right to live in peace, their right to be treated with dignity, their right to equality of opportunity, their right to be educated.

Malala totally deserved that nobel peace prize, she fights for others. Not herself and isn't selfish. - ToptenPizza

2 The terrorists thought they would change my aims and stop my ambitions, but nothing changed in my life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage were born.

Damn terrorists who shot her should just die right now and start burning in hell...but she didn't let them stop her she just got stronger. - ToptenPizza

3 If you hit a Talib with your shoe, then there would be no difference between you and the Talib. You must not treat others with cruelty and that much harshly, you must fight others but through peace and through dialogue and through education.

She was right. So many people (myself included) fight fire with fire, which just creates more fire. Little people use water to fight the fire, destroying that fire. - ToptenPizza

I need this on a t shirt or something. It's so true! - ToptenPizza

5 I don't know why people have divided the whole world into two groups, west and east. Education is neither eastern nor western. Education is education and it's the right of every human being.

Western places get education, why not Eastern? They deserve it too. Malala is correct, it's every humans right. It's what she fights for, but she shouldn't have to fight the government so women and girls can go to school - ToptenPizza

6 When I was born, some of our relatives came to our house and told my mother, 'Don't worry, next time you will have a son.'

That is so terrible, and why we need feminism! Why should men be valued more than women, we need both genders to reproduce! Neither gender could live without the other and that's final! - ToptenPizza

7 I do not even hate the Talib who shot me. Even if there was a gun in my hand and he stands in front of me, I would not shoot him.

That takes a lot of power to not get revenge or even hold a grudge. If I got shot I would definitely want to shoot them. Basically she's the best person alive. - ToptenPizza

8 Extremists have shown what frightens them most: a girl with a book.
