"...The end of our quest will bring out the old glory of Serbia to show who we indeed are: the children of our glorious and brave ancestors." / KARADJORDJE [George Petrovic - "Black George"]

First Serbian Uprising 1804

"Therefore, dear Serb brothers...now when it's only up to us, take an example from those peoples who foster unity and order, for they have become mighty and prosperous. Offer advice to each other, as the priests do, when they teach their flock. Teach them the words of Christ, the ones which say: 'As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. Not so much by words, but by your deeds...' By doing so, the end of our quest will bring out the old glory of Serbia to show who we indeed are: the children of our glorious and brave ancestors."
