The words used to form this artwork are: 

  • It always seems impossible until it's done.
  • Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
  • Money won't create success, the freedom to make it will.
  • I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.
  • The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
  • After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
  • As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest.
  • After one has been in prison, it is the small things that one appreciates: being able to take a walk whenever one wants, going into a shop and buying a newspaper, speaking or choosing to remain silent.
  • The simple act of being able to control one's person. No country can really develop unless its citizens are educated. Even if you have a terminal disease, you don't have to sit down and mope. Enjoy life and challenge the illness that you have.
  • A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.
  • It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
  • To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.
  • Give a child love, laughter and peace, not AIDS.
  • Our human compassion binds us the one to the other - not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future. Forget the past.
  • I do not deny that I planned sabotage. I did not plan it in a spirit of recklessness nor because I have any love of violence. I planned it as a result of a calm and sober assessment of the political situation that had arisen after many years of tyranny, exploitation and oppression of my people by the whites.
  • In countries where innocent people are dying, the leaders are following their blood rather than their brains. Sabotage did not involve loss of life, and it offered the best hope for future race relations.
  • Bitterness would be kept to a minimum and, if the policy bore fruit, democratic government could become a reality.
  • There are many people who feel that it is useless and futile to continue talking about peace and non-violence against a government whose only reply is savage attacks on an unarmed and defenseless people.
  • If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
  • The titanic effort that has brought liberation to South Africa, and ensured the total liberation of Africa, constitutes an act of redemption for the black people of the world.
  • There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires. Only free men can negotiate.
  • A prisoner cannot enter into contracts.
  • Any man or institution that tries to rob me of my dignity will lose.
  • Courageous people do not fear forgiving, for the sake of peace. A good leader can engage in a debate frankly and thoroughly, knowing that at the end he and the other side must be closer, and thus emerge stronger. You don't have that idea when you are arrogant, superficial, and uninformed.
  • I dream of an Africa which is in peace with itself. I really wanted to retire and rest and spend more time with my children, my grandchildren and of course with my wife. You know, you can only lead them from behind.
  • If you are poor, you are not likely to live long. We can't afford to be killing one another. I was first imprisoned in Pretoria, and then, thereafter, I was taken to Robben Island. I stayed there for a couple of weeks. I was taken back to Pretoria when I was charged in the Rivonia trial, when I was then sent to Robben Island for life. I realized quickly what Mandela and Tambo meant to ordinary Africans. It was a place where they could come and find a sympathetic ear and a competent ally, a place where they would not be either turned away or cheated, a place where they might actually feel proud to be represented by men of their own skin color.
  • There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
