More From Haile Gebrselassie
- "I have to change a lot of things before I become a good marathon runner."
- "You must do as your people do. If my people are poor, I must be poor. People ask me, ‘Why don’t you find a personal coach or a private car?’ I can’t. Then I won’t be part of my people."
- "At the moment I am a little bit politician, yes. I think that could be my next step. It is not because I want power, it is because of what I think I could do for the people."

- "All those authors there, most of whom of course I’ve never met. That’s the poetry side, that’s the prose side, that’s the fishing and miscellaneous behind me. You get an affection for books that you’ve enjoyed."― Norman MacCaig
- "And I also thought that Richard Nixon was the greatest political education we have ever had, but it looks like we need to relearn them again."― Wavy Gravy
- "I want to see far more decisions taken far closer to the patients, the passengers and the pupils. Far more power for locally and regionally elected politicians who understand best the needs of their areas. And far more say too for the dedicated staff at all levels in health and education."― Charles Kennedy
