Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela (July 18, 1918- December 5, 2013)
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living”
“Any man or institution that tries to rob me of my dignity will lose”
“To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity”
“In countries where innocent people are dying, the leaders are following their blood rather than their brains”
“I do not deny that I planned sabotage. I did not plan it in a spirit of recklessness nor because I have any love of violence. I planned it as a result of a calm and sober assessment of the political situation that had arisen after many years of tyranny, exploitation and oppression of my people by the whites”
