playing and chatting with children feeding and putting them to bed with the little story and being away from the family has troubled me throughout my life i like relaxing at the house reading quietly taking in the sweet smell that comes from the pots sitting around the table with the family and taking out my wife and children when you can no longer enjoy these simple pleasures something valuable is taken away from your life and you feel it in your daily work success in politics demands that you must take your people into confidence about your views and state them very clearly very politely very calmly but nevertheless state them openly in judging our progress as individual we tend to concentrate on external factors such as one's social position influence in popularity wealth and standard of education these are of course important in measuring one's success in material matters and it is perfectly understandable if many people exert themselves mainly to achieve all these but internal factors may be even more crucial in assessing one's development as a human being honesty sincerity simplicity humility pure generosity absence of vanity readiness to serve others qualities which are within reach of every soul are the foundation of one's spiritual life in some ways it is easier to be a dissident for then one is without responsibility let there be justice for all let there be peace for all let there be work bread water and salt for all let each know that for itch to body the mind and the soul has been freed to fulfill themselves when a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in he has no choice but to become an outlaw no one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion people must learn to hate

share their hopes and aspirations grasp their history appreciate their poetry or severth your songs i never lose i either win or learn i like friends who have independent minds because they tend to make you see problems from all angles man's goodness is a flame that can be hidden but never extinguished i learned that to humiliate another person is to make him suffer an unnecessarily cruel fate even as a boy i defeated my opponents without dishonoring them although i am a gregarious person i love solitude even more [Music] as long as many of our people still live in utter poverty as long as children still live under plastic covers as long as many of our people still without jobs no south african should rest and wallow in the joy of freedom overcoming poverty is not a task of charity it is an act of justice like slavery and apathy poverty is not natural it is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings it is not our diversity which divides us it is not our ethnicity or religion or culture that divides us since we have achieved our freedom there can only be one division amongst us between those who cherish democracy and those who do not a good head and good heart are always a formidable combination but when you add to that electric tongue or pen then you have something very special as i walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom i knew if i didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind i'll still be in prison [Music] if 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 you will achieve more in this world through acts of mercy than you will through acts of retribution 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 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 courageous people do not fear forgiven for the sake of peace the brave man is not the one who has no fears he is the one who triumphs over his fears there 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 men have different capacities and react differently to stress but the stronger ones raised up the weaker ones and both became stronger in the process those who conduct themselves with morality integrity and consistency need not fear the forces of inhumanity and cruelty [Music] there are few misfortunes in this world
