“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.”
– Nelson Mandela, April 20, 1964.
“Be your own artist, and always be confident in what you're doing. If you're not going to be confident, you might as well not be doing it.” -Aretha Franklin
