The name of Emperor Haile Selassie I will always be dominant in Ethiopian history. This is particularly so in connection with the legal and constitutional changes which he has instituted in the millenial history of the country. In this record on July 16, 1931....of his own volition and against strong conservative opposition, He granted to the Ethiopian people the first written constitution ever.

When in 1936 ... the Italian propaganda had discouraged our people so much that when Mrs. Bayen made the design "Save Ethiopia," some people thought that it was not such a good idea. When we were about to print some souvenir stamps in January 1937, I suggested the inscription "SAVE ETHIOPIA" on those stamps, but others thought that the words "HELP ETHIOPIA" should be used since most people thought Ethiopia was a lost cause.... Today we have succeeded not only in convincing thousands of the possibility of our success, but we are having their full cooperation... "
