“Banning not only confines one physically, it imprisons one's spirit. it induces a kind of psychological claustrophobia that makes one yearn not only for freedom of movement but spiritual escape...This insidious effect of bans was that at a certain point one began to think that the opponent was not without but within.” 

Nelson Mandela

“Your playing small does not serve the world. Who are you not to be great?” 

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

“A new world will be won not by those who stand at a distance with their arms folded, but by those who are in the arena, whose garments are torn by storms and whose bodies are maimed in the course of the contest. From a letter to Winnie Mandela,”

Nelson Mandela

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.”

Nelson Mandela

“grievance into a succinct and pithy phrase, while mobilizing the people to combat it. Our slogan” 

Nelson Mandela

“I was a young man who attempted to make up for his ignorance with militancy.”

Nelson Mandela

“I had no epiphany, no singular revelation, no moment of truth, but a steady accumulation of a thousand slights, a thousand indignities, a thousand unremembered moments, produced in me an anger, a rebelliousness, a desire to fight the system that imprisoned my people.”

Nelson Mandela

“Some mornings I walked out into the courtyard and every living thing there, the seagulls and wagtails, the small trees, and even the stray blades of grass seemed to smile and shine in the sun. It was at such times, when I perceived the beauty of even this small, closed-in corner of the world, that I knew that some day my people and I would be free.”

Nelson Mandela

“No one i born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

Nelson Mandela

“التحدي الكبير الذي يواجه كل سجين وخاصة السجين السياسي هو كيف يحافظ على سلامة عقله وبدنه ويخرج من السجن دون أن يفقد إيمانه وقناعاته بل يزيدها وينميها”

Nelson Mandela

“It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”

Nelson Mandela

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

Nelson Mandela

“We do not want freedom without bread, nor do we want bread without freedom.

Nelson Mandela

“Where you stand depends on where you sit.”

Nelson Mandela
