Some even took special trips to bookstores in neighbouring countries; others overcame serious difficulties in their search, sometimes even risking their lives. Some who found that it was not possible to get a copy of their own right away, borrowed one and copied it out by hand. Some of them compiled their own collections by clipping out the quotations from the daily Hsinhua News Release.

When an old peasant from a Cuban mountain area received a Spanish copy of the Quotations, he said: "Comrades. 1 assure you that I will study this book well." A Cuban office worker said: "I will apply it creatively in my life and work like the Chinese comrades do."

Every word of Chairman Mao sounds as if it came straight from the hearts of us workers." Guided by Chairman Mao's teachings, she has learnt how to distinguish between enemies and friends, and she has taken an active part in the struggle against the enemy undermining the friendship between the Japanese and Chinese peoples.
A Vietnamese comrade fighting in the front ranks of the struggle against U.S. imperialism said: "Chairman Mao has armed us with his concept of people's war, which has firmly convinced us that U.S. imperialism is bound to fail and the Vietnamese people are bound to win."
    Many foreign friends have written to tell their Chinese friends that they will always follow the leadership of Chairman Mao in making revolution and are determined to plant the great red banner of Mao Tse-tung's thought all over the world, and clear off all imperialists, modern revisionists, and other reactionaries. Revolutionaries in many countries use Chairman Mao's thought as a guide to action. Mao Tse-tung's thought, which is Marxism-Leninism in the era when imperialism is heading for total collapse and socialism is advancing to worldwide victory, is becoming more and more popular among the people of the world. A wave of studying and applying Chairman Mao's works and the Quotations From Chairman Mao Tse-tung is surging forward among the revolutionary people throughout the world.
