An innocent, almost child-like face, dreamy eyes looking into the ether and a hat with a star symbol on it: that is the ever-lasting image of the greatest rebel of the 20th century, Ernesto Che Guevara. 

I had known all about his story, even watched the popular movie, but it was only after I read about his 8,000 kilometer moto-journey across Latin America that I truly understood what he stood for. These are just eleven of his many profound observations which will speak to the traveller and non-conformist in you.

It was travel that set Che Guevara free, sometimes from his own doubts and inhibitions. I leave you with a quote that describes the journey with poise and grace. "It is about a journey of discovery that becomes one of self-discovery as well. It is about the emotional and political choices we all make in life. It's also about solidarity. Finally, it is about finding one's place in the world- one that is worth fighting for." Walter Salles, Director Motorcycle Diaries.

I think most Che Guevara quotes have an underlying message to it. I do not agree with his ideology and I think an article on his quotes is quite futile. I think people should read more about the leader before idolizing him.

For me, the best Che Guevara quotes are about his journey through life. I am not too fond of his revolutionary ideals. I think he thought with more clarity during his youth than during the latter half of his life.

I am surprised that some of Che Guevara quotes are inspirational despite him being an agnostic. I think he has great insight into a human being's soul. I may not agree with his ideas, but his quotes have got me thinking.

While I may not agree with his ideology, Che Guevara quotes resonate with me. I admire his free spirit and his love for adventure. Most of his quotes capture the essence of who he was as a person and leader.

Most Che Guevara quotes speak against the accumulation of property and riches. It instead focuses on living a fulfilled life. I think most people will relate to his ideology. This does not mean that we have to be radicals.
