"Whether Zomis shall sink in or swim across the storming sea of the modern world will depend on their ability to unify the scattered Zomis here and there into one single family or one nomenclature on the basis of their blood relationship and ethnical oneness… The word Zomi is not so selfish as we, who are still the slaves of selfishness…When we like to come under the name Zomi we can think of bigger aims, bigger plans as our American brothers do under the common name of America."
- Pu T Gougin
