"All constitutions seek to articulate, with differing degrees of intensity and detail, the shared aspirations of a nation; the values which bind its people; and which discipline its government and its national institutions; the basic premises upon which judicial, legislative and executive power is to be wielded; the constitutional limits and the conditions upon which that power is to be exercised; and the moral and ethical direction which that nation has identified for its future." Kate O'Regan, Judge of the Constitutional Court, South Africa
