God asks no man whether he will accept life. That is not the choice. You must take it. The only question is how.
– Henry Ward Beecher
During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people, I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if it needs be it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.
– Nelson Mandela
