You fall out of your mother’s womb, you crawl across open country under fire, and drop into your grave.
– Quentin Crisp
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
