    “In my country we go to prison first and then become President.”

    “After one has been in prison, it is the small things that one appreciates: being able to take a walk whenever one wants, going into a shop and buying a newspaper, speaking or choosing to remain silent. The simple act of being able to control one’s person.”—Nelson Mandela

    Another great quote by Nelson Mandela: When people started calling him a saint for forgiving his persecutors, he said, "I’m no Saint, unless, by “Saint”, you mean a sinner who keeps on trying."
