  7. Lead from the back — and let others believe they are in front.
  8. I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.
  9. As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.
  10. It is said that no one truly knows a nation until one has been inside its jails. A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens, but its lowest ones.
