Félix Houphouët-Boigny

The founder of modern Côte d'Ivoire


"Peace is not a word, it is behavior."

"Peace, which constantly needs exhortations, is a continuous acquisition, usually silent."

"The hungry man is not a free man."

"The sanctity of work also ennobles the one who carries the burdens or drives heavy machines, like the one who, in the silence of laboratories or offices, gives his task the best of his thought and care."

"It is easier to make war than to make peace."

Félix Houphouët-Boigny's Quotes
