    He got upset with anyone who was late for an appointment.
    He was impatient.
    He was regimented and sticks to a routine schedule.
    He was suspended from college for joining a protest boycott.
    He was sentenced to life in prison (April, 1984) - released (February 11, 1990).
    He believed in his convictions.
    During his life in prison sentence, he was offered freedom from jail if he would denounce violence, he refused: 'Only free men can negotiate,'
    He said: 'I detest racialism, because I regard it as a barbaric thing, whether it comes from a black man or a white man.'
    He explains why, in 1961, he stopped seeking a peaceful end to apartheid.
    He said: 'At the beginning of June 1961, after long and anxious assessment of the South African situation, I and some colleagues came to the conclusion that as violence in this country was inevitable, it would be wrong and unrealistic for African leaders to continue preaching peace and non-violence at a time when the government met our peaceful demands with force.'
    At his trial he said: 'I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.'
    He was hospitalized with a collapsed lung (January 27, 2011).
