“Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard.
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.”

William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

taken from Julius Caesar, Act II Scene 2;
it was Nelson Mandela’s favourite passage
whilst imprisoned on Robben Island.
