“Be absolute for death; for either death or life shall be the sweeter.”

Nelson Mandela

“May your choices reflect your hopes and not your fears.”

Nelson Mandela

“A friend of mine once saw Mandela in a South African airport and told me this story. The president had noticed a lady who was walking by with her daughter, a beautiful five- or six-year-old girl, with blond hair and blue eyes. Mandela walked up to this little girl and leaned down and shook her hand, and he said, “Do you know who I am?” And the child smiled and said, “Yes, you are President Mandela.” Mandela said, “Yes, I am your president. And if you work very hard in school and you learn a lot and you are nice to everybody, you too could grow up to be President of South Africa.”

Nelson Mandela

“The arbitrary and meaningless tests to decide black from Coloured or Coloured from white often resulted in tragic cases where members of the same family were classified differently, all depending on whether one child had a lighter or darker complexion. Where one was allowed to live and work could rest on such absurd distinctions as the curl of one’s hair or the size of one’s lips.”

Nelson Mandela

“The human body has an enormous capacity for adjusting to trying circumstances. I have found that one can bear the unbearable if one can keep one's spirit strong, even when one's body is being tested. Strong convictions are the secret of surviving deprivation. Your spirit can be full even when your stomach is empty.”

Nelson Mandela

“If I had my time over I would do the same again, so would any man who dares call himself a man.”

Nelson Mandela

“I am not an optimist, but a great believer of hope.”

Nelson Mandela

“It was a useful reminder that all men, even the most seemingly cold-blooded, have a core of decency, and that if their heart is touched, they are capable of changing.”

Nelson Mandela

“Let your courage rise with danger.”

Nelson Mandela

“Men, I think, are not capable of doing nothing, of saying nothing, of not reacting to injustice, of not protesting against oppression, of not striving for the good of society and the good life in the ways they see it.”

Nelson Mandela

“I believed that I would become a counsellor to the Thembu king,”

Nelson Mandela

“You will achieve more in this world through acts of mercy than you will through acts of retribution.”

Nelson Mandela

“For a revolution is not just a question of pulling a trigger; its purpose is to create a fair just society”

Nelson Mandela

“A good leader can engage in a debate frankly and thoroughly, knowing that at the end he and the other side must be closer, and thus emerge stronger. You don't have that idea when you are arrogant, superficial, and uninformed.”

Nelson Mandela

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

Nelson Mandela
