“Tread softly, Breathe peacefully, Laugh hysterically.”  ― Nelson Mandela”

Nelson Mandela

“I always remember the regent’s axiom: a leader, he said, is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.”

Nelson Mandela

“Like all Xhosa children, I acquired knowledge mainly through observation. We were meant to learn through imitation and emulation, not through questions. When I first visited the homes of whites, I was often dumbfounded by the number and nature of questions that children asked of their parents—and their parents’ unfailing willingness to answer them. In my household, questions were considered a nuisance; adults imparted information as they considered necessary.”

Nelson Mandela

“« L’éducation est l’arme la plus puissante que vous pouvez utiliser pour changer le monde. »”

Nelson Mandela

“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.”

Nelson Mandela

“One subject we hearkened back to again and again was the question of whether there were tigers in Africa.”

Nelson Mandela

“I could not imagine that the future I was walking toward could compare in any way to the past that I was leaving behind.”

Nelson Mandela

“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.”

Nelson Mandela

“We owe our children – the most vulnerable citizens in any society – a life free from violence and fear.”

Nelson Mandela

“It is not my ambition to marry a white woman or swim in a white pool. It is political equality that we want.”

Nelson Mandela

“Niente come tornare in un luogo rimasto immutato ci fa scoprire quanto siamo cambiati...”

Nelson Mandela

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion … if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love.”

Nelson Mandela

“He did not need to be ordained, for the traditional religion of the Xhosas is characterized by a cosmic wholeness, so that there is little distinction between the sacred and the secular, between the natural and the supernatural.”

Nelson Mandela

“After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.” 

Nelson Mandela

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
