Former President of Uruguay Jose Mujica was once considered the poorest, most humble leader in the world. Mujica took office in March 2010, but never moved into Uruguay’s presidential palace.

The following Jose Mujica quotes outline the views of the 80 year old man that managed to legalize marijuana, abortion, and gay marriage in Uruguay:
