In 1963, the U.N. Security Council declared a voluntary arms embargo on South Africa. That was extended to a mandatory embargo in 1977. And that was followed by economic sanctions and other measures - sometimes officials, countries, cities, towns - some organized by popular movements.

We have long passed the Victorian Era when asterisks were followed after a certain interval by a baby.
W. Somerset Maugham
Not a tenth of us who are in business are doing as well as we could if we merely followed the principles that were known to our grandfathers.
I think my heart is quite selfish. If I followed my heart, I would not be a good person. But I have moral principles. I have to sit down and reflect.

Our first and only reaction is, 'Oh, no,' quickly followed by, 'How can I get out of this?'

'Iron' Mike Tyson is the last boxer who was truly embraced by the media. They followed him around. You didn't know what he was going to do next: bite you, cut you, fight you. When you think about it, that defines him - it was an exciting adventure.
