Fidel on Madiba.

“If one wanted an example of an absolutely upright man, that man, that example, would be Mandela. If one wanted an example of an unshakably firm, courageous, heroic, calm, intelligent, and capable man, that example would be Mandela. I did not just reach this conclusion after having met him in person. … I have thought this for many years. I identify him as one of the most extraordinary symbols of this era.”

– From We Will Never Return To the Slave Barracks, 1991.
