Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement.
Nelson Mandela   Category:

Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.
Nelson Mandela   Category: Peace

Money won't create success, the freedom to make it will.
Nelson Mandela   Category:

Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another.
Nelson Mandela   Category:

Only free men can negotiate; prisoners cannot enter into contracts. Your freedom and mine cannot be separated.
