"[The Mexican revolution] was a break with the past to recover the past. We were trying to deny we had an Indian and a black and a Spanish past. The Mexican Revolution accepted all heritages. It allowed Mexico to be mestizo."

Quoted in Anne-Marie O'Connor, "Novelist Carlos Fuentes confronts mortality and his country's future", Los Angeles Times, 26 April 2006
