Notes to the Future
With a Foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu
"I was made, by the law, a criminal, not because of what I had done, but because of what I stood for, because of what I thought, because of my conscience"
-Address to the court on charges of inciting workers to strike and leaving the country illegally, Old Synagogue, Pretoria, South Africa, November 1962
A powerful and thought-provoking book from a true icon of our time, this is an abridged book of quotations based on Nelson Mandela by Himself.
Nelson Mandela has a truly unique life story, and his fight for equality in South-Africa has seen him become one of the most well recognised and iconic figures of our age. This book of quotations captures the thought-processes, and the beautiful words that have helped Nelson Mandela inspire the world with his message of hope and endurance.
The book is organised thematically across two page spreads that aim to show the tension and evolution evident in Mandela's life and thinking. Divided into four parts under the headings: Struggle, Victory, Wisdom and Future, these quotations offer a special insight into the events that have shaped Nelson Mandela's iconic life.
