“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

“Lead from the back and let others believe they are in front.” 

Nelson Mandela

“Muž by měl mít dům poblíž svého rodiště, kde by našel klid, který jinde postrádá.”

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

“There are few misfortunes in this world that you cannot turn into a personal triumph if you have the iron will and the necessary skill.”

Nelson Mandela

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Nelson Mandela

“Difficulties break some men but make others”

Nelson Mandela

“I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.”

Nelson Mandela

“Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world”

Nelson Mandela

“LIFE IN ALEXANDRA was exhilarating and precarious. Its atmosphere was alive, its spirit adventurous, its people resourceful. Although the township did boast some handsome buildings, it could fairly be described as a slum, living testimony to the neglect of the authorities. The roads were unpaved and dirty, and filled with hungry, undernourished children scampering around half-naked. The air was thick with the smoke from coal fires in tin braziers and stoves. A single water tap served several houses. Pools of stinking, stagnant water full of maggots collected by the side of the road. Alexandra was known as “Dark City” for its complete absence of electricity. Walking home at night was perilous, for there were no lights, the silence pierced by yells, laughter, and occasional gunfire. So different from the darkness of the Transkei, which seemed to envelop one in a welcome embrace.” 

Nelson Mandela

“We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.”

Nelson Mandela

“Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”

Nelson Mandela

“Suddenly there were no Xhosas or Zulus, no Indians or Africans, no rightists or leftists, no religious or political leaders; we were all nationalists and patriots bound together by a love of our common history our culture, our country, and our people.”

Nelson Mandela

“And as we let our own light 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

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