"I can rest only for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities,
and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not yet ended."
Nelson Mandela (From long walk to freedom, 1995).
"When a man has done what he considers to be his duty
to his people and his country, he can rest in peace.
I believe I have made that effort
and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for the eternity."
