The Bard provided tutelage and wisdom for Mandela while he was in prison. It seems that words inspired the great man while he served time. Two words in particular have always stood out when I think of Lincoln, and now Mandela: equanimity and magnanimity. They both seemed to have cultivated these virtues while they suffered, endured, and reflected on the Bard.
