Nelson Mandela. 1918-2013
Portrait by Per-Anders Pettersson, 2009
"I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended."
Long Walk to Freedom, 1994
"Courageous people do not fear forgiving for the sake of peace."
