Mandela is 90 today

" Let it never be said by future generations that indifference, cynicism or selfishness made us fail to live up to the ideals of humanism ..."

Nelson Mandela
[From Nobel Lectures, Peace 1991-1995, Editor Irwin Abrams, World Scientific Publishing Co., Singapore, 1999]

Nelson Mandela was 44 years old when he was arrested in 1962, and subsequently imprisoned for leaving South Africa without a passport. Two years later, while serving this sentence, he was infamously convicted of sabotage and conspiracy to launch violent revolution, and spent his prime in prison as a result.
