24First black president of the Republic of South Africa (1994 - 1999)

1During my lifetime, I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the idea 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.
2[on Steve Biko, who was murdered in 1977] They had to kill him to prolong the life of apartheid.
3Special Olympians face prejudice with the injustice of apartheid.
4Before I went to jail, I was active in politics as a member of South Africa's leading organization - and I was generally busy from 7 A.M. until midnight. I never had time to sit and think.
5The United States has made serious mistakes in the conduct of its foreign affairs, which have had unfortunate repercussions long after the decisions were taken.
6I started to make a study of the art of war and revolution and, whilst abroad, underwent a course in military training. If there was to be guerrilla warfare, I wanted to be able to stand and fight with my people and to share the hazards of war with them.
7The titanic effort that has brought liberation to South Africa, and ensured the total liberation of Africa, constitutes an act of redemption for the black people of the world.
8There are many people who feel that it is useless and futile to continue talking about peace and non-violence against a government whose only reply is savage attacks on an unarmed and defenseless people.
9Our single most important challenge is therefore to help establish a social order in which the freedom of the individual will truly mean the freedom of the individual.
10I do not deny that I planned sabotage. I did not plan it in a spirit of recklessness nor because I have any love of violence. I planned it as a result of a calm and sober assessment of the political situation that had arisen after many years of tyranny, exploitation and oppression of my people by the whites.
11There are many people in South Africa who are rich and who can share those riches with those not so fortunate who have not been able to conquer poverty.
12There is nothing I fear more than waking up without a program that will help me bring a little happiness to those with no resources, those who are poor, illiterate, and ridden with terminal disease.
13Let us give publicity to H.I.V./AIDS and not hide it, because the only way to make it appear like a normal illness like TB, like cancer, is always to come out and say somebody has died because of H.I.V./AIDS, and people will stop regarding it as something extraordinary.
14My son has died of AIDS.
15Africans require, want, the franchise on the basis of one man one vote. They want political independence.
16You know, you can only lead them from behind.
17Nonviolence is a good policy when the conditions permit.
18If you are poor, you are not likely to live long.
19I stand here before you not as a prophet, but as a humble servant of you, the people.
20I have been influenced in my thinking by both west and east.
21I really wanted to retire and rest and spend more time with my children, my grandchildren and of course with my wife.
22It is wise to persuade people to do things and make them think it was their own idea.
23I have retired, but if there's anything that would kill me it is to wake up in the morning not knowing what to do.
24I am confident that nobody... will accuse me of selfishness if I ask to spend time, while I am still in good health, with my family, my friends and also with myself.
25Intervention only works when the people concerned seem to be keen for peace.
26I was not a messiah, but an ordinary man who had become a leader because of extraordinary circumstances.
27Forget the past.
28By ancestry, I was born to rule.
29Only free men can negotiate. A prisoner cannot enter into contracts.
30I made a mistake by being ejected from the presidency. Next time, I will choose a Cabinet which will allow me to be life President.
31I should tie myself to no particular system of society other than of socialism.
32Sometimes, I feel like one who is on the sidelines, who has missed life itself.
33I was called a terrorist yesterday, but when I came out of jail, many people embraced me, including my enemies, and that is what I normally tell other people who say those who are struggling for liberation in their country are terrorists.
34Leaders in all spheres who are living with HIV should be encouraged, not coerced, to lead by example and disclose their HIV status.
35Where globalization means, as it so often does, that the rich and powerful now have new means to further enrich and empower themselves at the cost of the poorer and weaker, we have a responsibility to protest in the name of universal freedom.
36I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities.
37In countries where innocent people are dying, the leaders are following their blood rather than their brains.
38Our human compassion binds us the one to the other - not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.
39If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America.
40We can't afford to be killing one another.
41I cannot conceive of Israel withdrawing if Arab states do not recognize Israel, within secure borders.
42Unlike some politicians, I can admit to a mistake.
43There is no such thing as part freedom.
44Communists have always played an active role in the fight by colonial countries for their freedom, because the short-term objects of Communism would always correspond with the long-term objects of freedom movements.
45No country can really develop unless its citizens are educated.
46When the water starts boiling it is foolish to turn off the heat.
47Courageous people do not fear forgiving, for the sake of peace.
48Any man or institution that tries to rob me of my dignity will lose.
49To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.
50I dream of the realization of the unity of Africa, whereby its leaders combine in their efforts to solve the problems of this continent. I dream of our vast deserts, of our forests, of all our great wildernesses.
51There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.
52If there are dreams about a beautiful South Africa, there are also roads that lead to their goal. Two of these roads could be named Goodness and Forgiveness.
53Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement.
54Money won't create success, the freedom to make it will.
55A good leader can engage in a debate frankly and thoroughly, knowing that at the end he and the other side must be closer, and thus emerge stronger. You don't have that idea when you are arrogant, superficial, and uninformed.
56I dream of an Africa which is in peace with itself.
57Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.
58I detest racialism, because I regard it as a barbaric thing, whether it comes from a black man or a white man.
59Does anybody really think that they didn't get what they had because they didn't have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment?
60We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.
61In my country we go to prison first and then become President.
62There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children.
63If the United States of America or Britain is having elections, they don't ask for observers from Africa or from Asia. But when we have elections, they want observers.
64There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.
65Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another.
66It always seems impossible until it's done.
67After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
68There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
69If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.
70For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
71Only free men can negotiate; prisoners cannot enter into contracts. Your freedom and mine cannot be separated.
72I can't pretend that I'm brave and that I can beat the whole world.
73I have always regarded myself, in the first place, as an African patriot.
74Give a child love, laughter and peace, not AIDS.
75Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
76A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.
77I 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.
78It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
79If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
