Wisdom on Wednesday : The independence imperative

"We are seeking sovereignty because it is absolutely essential, like the ripening of fruit, like reaching adulthood, like a river opening out into the ocean. It is necessary because we are a people."

Said by Lucien Bouchard, moderate leader of the (very nearly successful) Quebec independence movement in 1995. And I bet that quote sounded even better in French!
