Where globalization means, as it so often does, that the rich and powerful now have new means to further enrich and empower themselves at the cost of the poorer and weaker, we have a responsibility to protest in the name of universal freedom.
I detest racialism, because I regard it as a barbaric thing, whether it comes from a black man or a white man.
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.
To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.
We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandel: (18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist, who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country's first black head of state and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid by tackling institutionalised racism and fostering racial reconciliation.
