- Nelson Mandela Quotes-

Nelson Mandela
Nelson Mandela
He personifies struggle. He is still leading the fight against apartheid with extraordinary vigour and resilience after spending nearly 27 years of his life behind bars in South Africa before he became the country's first black president.

He has sacrificed his private life and his youth for his people, and remains South Africa's best known and loved hero. During his years in prison, Nelson Mandela's reputation grew steadily.
He was widely accepted as the most significant black leader in South Africa and became a potent symbol of resistance as the anti-apartheid movement gathered strength. He consistently refused to compromise his political position to obtain his freedom. ( 1918 -)

~ Nelson Mandela
If the United States of America or Britain is having elections, they don't ask for observers from Africa or from Asia. But when we have elections, they want observers.

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.

In my country we go to prison first and then become President.
~ Nelson Mandela
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
~ Nelson Mandela
It always seems impossible until its done.
~ Nelson Mandela
Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.
~ Nelson Mandela
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
~ Nelson Mandela
I dream of the realization of the unity of Africa, whereby its leaders combine in their efforts to solve the problems of this continent. I dream of our vast deserts, of our forests, of all our great wildernesses.
~ Nelson Mandela
