From the heart and soul of visionary Nobel Peace Prize winner Nelson Mandela, a collection of his most uplifting, time-honored quotes that have inspired our world and offer a path for peace. "The book that you hold in your hands is nothing short of a miracle." --Desmond Tutu, from the Introduction The authorized record of Nelson Mandela's most inspiring and historically important quotations Notes to the Future is the definitive book of quotations from one of the great leaders of our time. This collection--gathered from privileged access to Mandela's vast personal archive of private papers, speeches, correspondence, and audio recordings-- features more than three hundred quotations spanning more than sixty years, and includes his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. These inspirational quotations, organized into four sections--Struggle, Victory, Wisdom, and Future--are both universal and deeply personal. We see Mandela's sense of humor, his loneliness and despair, his thoughts on fatherhood, and the reluctant leader who had no choice but to become the man history demanded. *** A good pen can also remind us of the happiest moments in our lives, bring noble ideas into our dens, our blood and our souls. It can turn tragedy into hope and victory. FROM A LETTER TO ZINDZI MANDELA, WRITTEN ON ROBBEN ISLAND, FEBRUARY 10, 1980
