Quote of the Week

I have never cared very much for personal prizes. A man does not become a freedom fighter in the hope of winning awards, but when I was notified that I had won the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize jointly with Mr de Klerk, I was deeply moved. The Nobel Peace Prize had a special meaning to me because of its involvement with South African history. [...] The award was a tribute to all South Africans and especially to those who fought in the struggle; I would accept it on their behalf.
Nelson Mandela

So humble. Almost like Obama mentioning him getting the price when his dog seemed more important...

;D
