The mistake the apartheid government made was they gave the black people nothing, so they had nothing to lose. But now a lot of the former freedom-fighters are big-time capitalists. They've been given directorships in every major company. They're billionaires!
One of the disadvantages of wine is that it makes a man mistake words for thoughts.
Now the problem with standardized tests is that it's based on the mistake that we can simply scale up the education of children like you would scale up making carburetors.

But now, being a parent, I go home and see my son and I forget about any mistake I ever made or the reason I'm upset. I get home and my son is smiling or he comes running to me. It has just made me grow as an individual and grow as a man.
Like everyone else who makes the mistake of getting older, I begin each day with coffee and obituaries.

I think a lot of people mistake my confidence on stage for cockiness in real life, and that's actually farthest from the truth.
