“I have retired, but if there’s anything that would kill me it is to wake up in the morning not knowing what to do.”
- I have always regarded myself, in the first place, as an African patriot.
- I have been influenced in my thinking by both west and east.
- 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.
- I have retired, but if there’s anything that would kill me it is to wake up in the morning not knowing what to do.
- I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
- I made a mistake by being ejected from the presidency. Next time, I will choose a Cabinet which will allow me to be life President.
- I realized quickly what Mandela and Tambo meant to ordinary Africans. It was a place where they could come and find a sympathetic ear and a competent ally, a place where they would not be either turned away or cheated, a place where they might actually feel proud to be represented by men of their own skin color.
