同黑非洲留法学生联合代表团的谈话(摘录)

(一九六五年九月十四日)

事情总是有麻烦,不能怕麻烦。革命也可以叫麻烦。革命就是麻烦,搞经济建设也是麻烦。怕麻烦什么事情也搞不成,不怕麻烦什么事情也可以搞成。……知识分子就是要能够跟人民的大多数结合起来。跟他们结合的时候就有麻烦,你要跟他结合,他不跟你结合,这个麻烦得很!这些人听话,那些人又不听话,就有这些麻烦。不能怕这些麻烦,无非是在长期的斗争中跟群众站在一道,群众最后会了解你们的,会信任你们的,会在那些真正为人民利益服务的人的领导下团结起来的。劳动人民很需要为他们服务的知识分子,但是,不为他们服务的知识分子,他们不高兴,不喜欢。

你或者是比他们高一等,站在他们头上,那他们不喜欢。他们喜欢那种平等的人,用平等的态度对待他们,跟他们一道参加劳动,了解他们的思想情况,了解他们的要求,为他们的利益服务,又有知识,他们喜欢这样的人。
