   Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations.  1989.
 
 
NUMBER:1618
AUTHOR:Adlai Ewing Stevenson (1900–65)
QUOTATION:Many of the world’s troubles are not due just to Russia or communism. They would be with us in any event because we live in an era of revolution—the revolution of rising expectations. In Asia, the masses now count for something. Tomorrow, they will count for more. And, for better or for worse, the future belongs to those who understand the hopes and fears of masses in ferment. The new nations want independence, including the inalienable able right to make their own mistakes. The people want respect—and something to eat every day. And they want something better for their children.
