Julian Assange: If you want the truth, no one is going to tell you the truth, they're going to tell you their version. So if you want the truth, you have to seek it out for yourself. In fact that's where power lies, in your willingness to look beyond this story, any story. And as long as you keep searching, you are dangerous to them. That's what they're afraid of: you. It's all about you. And a little bit about me too.
Julian Assange: You can't go far in this world by relying on people. People are loyal until it seems opportune not to be.
Julian Assange: I've heard people say I dangle on the autistic spectrum. Probably why I lean so heavily on those around me.
Julian Assange: Man is least himself when he talks with his own person. But if you give him a mask, he will tell you the truth. Two people, and a secret: the beginning of all conspiracies. More people, and, more secrets. But if we could find one moral man, one whistle-blower. Someone willing to expose those secrets, that man can topple the most powerful and most repressive of regimes.

Julian Assange: As Oscar Wilde said, "Man is least himself when he talks with his own person. Give a man a mask, and he will tell you the truth. "
Julian Assange: I have a son in Melbourne. He turns nineteen next week, I haven't seen him in a year. It takes two things to change the world, and you'd be surprised how many people have good ideas. But commitment, true commitment, that's the hard one. It requires sacrifice.
