Malala: I chose this life. It was not forced on me. It was not told to me to live such kind of life. I chose this life and now I must continue it.
Malala: I think (that) she's (Mulala's Mother) not independent or free because she's not educated.
Malala: I want people to learn from the experience I had and the story of my life.
Malala: In Kenya, there are so many girls that cannot go to school.
Malala: It is so hard to get things done in this world. You try, and too often, it doesn't work. But, you have to continue and you never give up.
Malala: Sometime (Mulala's Mother) say, "Don't shake hand with man. Look down. Don't look at men. It's a shame." And, I said, "If men can look at me, why can't I look at them?"
Malala: The Taliban are a small group of people. They think that God is a tiny, little, conservative being. But for us, God is not that tiny. God has sent us to this world to see how would we live. Would they choose a bad way or a good way?
Malala: There is a moment when you have to choose, whether to be silent, or to stand up.
Malala: They thought that the bullet would silence us.
Malala: When I was in Pakistan, it was a different world for me.
Ziauddin: As a schoolboy, the hardest times were the moments when a teacher asked me to stand and read a passage from a book.
Ziauddin: Change matters.
Ziauddin: Education gives you the power to question things. Education gives you the power to question things. The power to challenge things. To be independent.
Ziauddin: I loved education. I loved to be a teacher.
Ziauddin: I put in my student a type of rebel against traditions, customs and how to raise their voice.
Ziauddin: I started my own school, just with $150.
Ziauddin: If I keep silent, I think, then, you lose the right to exist. The right to live. If my rights are violated and I keep silent, I should better die than to live.
Ziauddin: My name was announced. I went to the podium. I was speaking to the people but, I did not see them. And, when I ended my speech, one of my teachers came to me and told, "Oh, Ziauddin, you spread the fire." I got encouraged. I didn't keep silent. I spoke. (Emotionally) Because, this is me. Because, this is me.
Ziauddin: They are cruel people who are misusing the name of Islam. They are the enemies of Islam.
