The human spirit knows no defeat. The human spirit is a ceaselessly triumphant journey.
This spirit is accompanied by three most powerful assistants: freedom, democracy and hope. President Clinton of The United States most powerfully and most irrevocably presents President Nelson Mandela to the world stage for the world to appreciate, admire and adore:
"Now, all over the world, there are three words which, spoken together, express the triumph of freedom, democracy and hope for the future. They are 'President Nelson Mandela'. In you, sir, we see proof that the human spirit can never be crushed."
