On Robben Island, the prisoners had a contraband copy of Shakespeare’s Collected Works. Nelson Mandela marked this as his favourite passage:
Cowards die many times before their deaths:
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I have yet heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear,
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.
