8 Inspirational Quotes from Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s first black president, Nobel Prize winner and anti-Apartheid icon passed away on Thursday at his home in Johannesburg at the age of 95. By any standard, Madiba, as he was fondly referred to by those who loved him, lived a robust, fulfilling and impactful life. Few people have had as much impact on history as Madiba had. History will remember him as one of the greatest men who ever lived – an incredibly selfless man who made so much of a sacrifice to re-write the history of generations of South Africans and the world.

During his lifetime, Mandela inspired us with his numerous words of wisdom, etched in our memories till tomorrow. And his words remain evergreen:

#1 “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. “

#2 “Difficulties break some men but make others. No axe is sharp enough to cut the soul of a sinner who keeps on trying, one armed with the hope that he will rise even in the end.”

#3 “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

#4 “Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.”

#5 “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

#6 “Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will.”

#7 “We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.”

#8 “A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.”
