Nelson Mandela

“We accord a person’s dignity by assuming that they are good, that they share the human qualities we ascribe to ourselves”

“Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is a protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life”

“”I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.”

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others”

What an amazing man Madiba is!!!
