A Simple Freedom - Ahmed Kathrada with Tim Couzens
A Simple Freedom: The Strong Mind of Robben Island Prisoner, No. 468/64 by Ahmed Kathrada with Tim Couzens. During his incarceration, Ahmed Kathrada secretly jotted down quotations which he came across and liked: proverbs, aphorisms, poetry and drama extracts, and passages from books, magazines and newspapers. On Robben Island these quotations were like familiar freinds. They helped steel the soul within the stolen body - the authorities might control that body but they could not lock up the mind.
