The following famous words that was said by Nelson Mandela at his trial in 1964 :
(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)
I did not understand what is meant by (but if it needs be).
Thanks in advance for your assistance
hi, i am not a teacher.
As far as I understand, it means "if necessary".
I agree that "if need be" means "if necessary".
