I stand here before you not as a prophet, but as a humble servant of you, the people.

Any man or institution that tries to rob me of my dignity will lose.
I dream of the realization of the unity of Africa, whereby its leaders combine in their efforts to solve the problems of this continent. I dream of our vast deserts, of our forests, of all our great wildernesses.

Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.
There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest.
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
