Product description

Through his words and actions, Nelson Mandela has been embraced worldwide as our leading symbol of courage, hope and reconciliation. In the Words of Nelson Mandela is a unique collection of quotations from one of the most admired men on the planet. His thoughts on subjects as diverse as humanity, friendship, oppression and freedom provide valuable insights into the man and all he stands for. By turns moving, revealing, humourous and wise, this book eloquently conveys his warmth and dignity, and his words are certain to inspire and give strength to all who read them. On freedom: 'To be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the lives of others' On boxing:'My greatest regret in life is that I never became the heavyweight boxing champion of the world' On self-respect: 'If you are in harmony with yourself, you may meet a lion without fear, because he respects anyone with self-confidence' An ideal reading accompaniment to the new film based on the South African President's autobiography, The Long Walk to Freedom
