There remains in the face of women who are naturally serene and peaceful, and of those rendered so by religion, an after-spring, and later an after-summer, the reflex of their most beautiful bloom.Jean Paul Richter

- "I know it's difficult to forget the past but I urge everyone here today to try and move the country forward."
- "I believe if we all have faith in what we want to achieve, there's no doubt we will achieve it together as a community."
- "They (Indo-Fijians) have been part of our lives and they are the very ones who made us what we are today, and I urge you to consider their plight and assist them in whatever way possible."
- "Likewise to our Indian brothers and sisters, it's your duty to respect one another and value cultural differences and traditions."
