The Wise Teachings of Madiba Nelson Mandela

“No one is born hating another person because of the color 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.”

“I am not a saint. Unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps trying”

“Lead from the back-and let others believe theyre in front.”

“Resentment is like drinking poison and hoping it will kill your enemies”

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

“Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”
