|"We do not believe that this Nobel Peace Prize is
intended as a commendation for matters that have
happened and passed.
We hear the voices which say that it is an appeal from
all those, throughout the universe, who sought an end
to the system of apartheid.
We understand their call, that we devote what remains
of our lives to the use of our country's unique and
painful experience to demonstrate, in practice, that the
normal condition for human existence is democracy,
justice, peace, non-racism, non-sexism, prosperity for
everybody, a healthy environment and equality and
solidarity among the peoples."

Nelson Mandela on his 92nd birthday.
It's made of their photos.
|"During 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 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."

keener revelation of
a society's soul than
the way in which it
treats its children."
