"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.”
- Nelson Mandela, July 14, 2000, South Africa. Mr. Mandela (1918 – 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist.
