“I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal, which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die. “ – Mandela’s
Talking about the price of freedom, Martin Luther king said, “But if physical death is the price that some must pay to free their children and their white brothers from an eternal psychological death, then nothing can be more redemptive”.
And I am reminded of Mahatma Gandhi’s words too. “Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will”.
