Mandela fought against apartheid for decades, spent twenty-seven years in prison for his work, and was eventually elected President of South Africa in 1994. In 1993 he and F.W. de Klerk received the Nobel Peace Prize “for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa”.

Happy Birthday Vivien Leigh (November 5th 1913 - July 7th 1967)
"She was a star in the real meaning of the word, in that she spread light on everybody" -Peter Wyngarde
"I always felt that in whatever age or class she had been born, she would have found prominence in one role or another - that bright star would have come to the fore" -Peter Hiley
"She had such an exquisite unreality about her" -Diana Vreeland
"Emphatically the top. In her or anybody else’s time" -Noel Coward
Happy 100th Birthday, Vivien Leigh! b. November 5, 1913 - d. July 8, 1967
"My first reaction on seeing Vivien Leigh was one of stunned disbelief. I’d thought her beautiful on screen, but was totally unprepared for the personal impact." - Bernard Braden
"She was a lovely, generous, darling friend, and I will miss her always." - Noel Coward
"I’ll never forget her arrangements. Nor her love for Alex Korda. Nor all those cats. Her ridiculous laughter, her fabulous generosity of heart, and her guts in adversity." - David Niven
"My acquaintance with the lovely Vivien Leigh was one of those friendships that endured over the years, sometimes many years passing without our meeting. My most vivid memory of her was when I was in London, and suffering that infuriating affliction of losing your balance. Not serious, but a long bore! I was in bed at the Connaught Hotel, and the phone rang and it was Vivien, who said: "Darling, here we are, both of us in bed! Isn’t it ridiculous?" We shared the same doctor, and it was he who hastened over to me to inform me of her death. He was afraid I would hear it on the TV or radio…She was without a doubt the most exquisitely beautiful woman ever. I wish I had spent more time with her in my life." - Deborah Kerr
Happy 100th Birthday, Vivien Leigh! (b. November 13, 1913 - d. July 8, 1967)
"I love an audience. I love people, and I act because I like trying to give pleasure to people."
Happy 100th Birthday Vivien Leigh!
(November 5, 1913- July 8, 1967)
She was the definition of loveliness as a woman and as an artist.
