The quote that has inspired me to date goes as follows.
"Nothing is noble in being superior to
another human being, true nobility is being superior to your previous
It's self explanatory that it's about progression; that you can't
just be engaged in a vicious circle, but as a human being you grow.
I got inspired by this kind of quotation especially under apartheid
South Africa. Things were very tough, but I have since realised that
the human spirit triumphs. You've survived I've survived, we have
survived. Because of my conviction and belief that the past cannot
equal the future, I always believed that at some point we were going
to have a better life, it's something that I can relate to.
I am referred to as the voice of reason in this country. Others call
me the People's Poet. They normally refer to the power of the spoken
word. People say my voice is powerful and my poetry obviously sustained
the momentum even when the leadership was in prison or exile - my
voice was there hence the harassment. People believe that Mzwakhe
has power, and there is power in what I say.
