Nelson Mandela: in his own words

first_imgHe is one of the most quoted, and misquoted, people in the world – an irony, given that for much of his adult life he could not be quoted at all. But Nelson Mandela By Himself: The Authorised Book of Quotations, which was first published in June 2011, is the first official and fully referenced record of his most important and inspiring quotations. “This collection – gathered from privileged authorised access to Mandela’s vast personal archive of private papers, speeches, correspondence and audio recordings – features more than 2 000 quotations spanning over 60 years,” says the Nelson Mandela Foundation. The inspirational quotations are organised into more than 300 categories for easy reference, including such aspects as what defines greatness in “Character”, “Courage” and “Optimism”. One can also learn from Mandela the essence of democracy, freedom and struggle in the categories such as “Democracy”, “History”, “Racism”, “Reconciliation” and “Unity”.Selected quotations from the book On speaking Long speeches, the shaking of fists, the banging of tables and strongly worded resolutions out of touch with the objective conditions do not bring about mass action and can do a great deal of harm to the organisation and the struggle we serve. – Presidential Address to the ANC Transvaal Congress, also known as the “No Easy Walk to Freedom” speech, Transvaal, South Africa, 21 September 1953 On the future Many people in this country have paid the price before me and many will pay the price after me. – Speech in mitigation of sentence after being convicted of inciting workers to strike and leaving the country illegally, Old Synagogue, Pretoria, South Africa, November 1962 On the liberation movement If I had my time over I would do the same again. So would any man who dares call himself a man. – Speech in mitigation of sentence after being convicted of inciting workers to strike and leaving the country illegally, Old Synagogue, Pretoria, South Africa, November 1962 On challenges Difficulties break some men but make others. No axe is sharp enough to cut the soul of a sinner who keeps on trying, one armed with the hope that he will rise even in the end. – From a letter to Winnie Mandela, written on Robben Island, 1 February 1975 On friendship I like friends who have independent minds because they tend to make you see problems from all angles. – From his unpublished autobiographical manuscript written in prison, 1975 On equality I have never regarded any man as my superior, either in my life outside or inside prison. – From a letter to General Du Preez, Commissioner of Prisons, written on Robben Island, Cape Town, South Africa, 12 July 1976 On time I never think of the time I have lost. I just carry out a programme because it’s there. It’s mapped out for me. – From a conversation with Richard Stengel, 3 May 1993 On death Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for the eternity. – From an interview for the documentary Mandela, 1994 On ideology I had no specific belief except that our cause was just, was very strong and it was winning more and more support. – Robben Island, Cape Town, South Africa, 11 February 1994 On freedom of expression A critical, independent and investigative press is the lifeblood of any democracy. The press must be free from state interference. It must have the economic strength to stand up to the blandishments of government officials. It must have sufficient independence from vested interests to be bold and inquiring without fear or favour. It must enjoy the protection of the constitution, so that it can protect our rights as citizens. – At the International Press Institute Congress, 14 February 1994 On character It is in the character of growth that we should learn from both pleasant and unpleasant experiences. – Foreign Correspondents’ Association’s Annual Dinner, Johannesburg, South Africa, 21 November 1997 On leadership Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice all for the freedom of their people. – Chief Albert Luthuli Centenary Celebrations, KwaDukuza, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, 25 April 1998 On words It is never my custom to use words lightly. If twenty-seven years in prison have done anything to us, it was to use the silence of solitude to make us understand how precious words are and how real speech is in its impact on the way people live and die. – Closing address, 13th International Aids Conference, Durban, South Africa, 14 July 2000 On life What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead. – 90th birthday celebration of Walter Sisulu, Walter Sisulu Hall, Randburg, Johannesburg, South Africa, 18 May 2002 On freedom fighters We tried in our simple way to lead our life in a manner that may make a difference to those of others. – Upon receiving the Roosevelt Freedom Award, 8 June 2002 On integrity Those who conduct themselves with morality, integrity and consistency need not fear the forces of inhumanity and cruelty. – At the British Red Cross Humanity Lecture, Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre, London, England, 10 July 2003 On Aids When the history of our times is written, will we be remembered as the generation that turned our backs in a moment of global crisis or will it be recorded that we did the right thing? – 46664 concert, Tromso, Norway, 11 June 2005 On humour You sharpen your ideas by reducing yourself to the level of the people you are with, and a sense of humour and a complete relaxation, even when you’re discussing serious things, does help to mobilise friends around you. And I love that. – From an interview with Tim Couzens, Verne Harris and Mac Maharaj for Mandela: The Authorised Portrait, 2006, 13 August 2005 On selflessness A fundamental concern for others in our individual and community lives would go a long way in making the world the better place we so passionately dreamt of. – Kliptown, Soweto, South Africa, 12 July 2008 On determination Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do. – From a letter to Makhaya Ntini on his 100th cricket test, 17 December 2009 SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
