Mandela .. spotlight on a life lived 1918 - 2013.. in words and pictures

" There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of"

"No one is born hating another because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People 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".

"Poverty is not an accident. like slavery and apartheid, it is man made, and can be removed by the actions of human beings"

"I detest racism. I regard it as a barbaric thing, whether it comes from a black man, or a white man"

"I dream of an Africa, which is at peace with itself"

" A good head, and a good heart, is always a formidable combination"

"It always seems impossible.. until it's done"

Rest in Peace.. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela


  1. A true leader and one of the greatest men of the 20th century!
