Op 95 jarige leeftijd is er een leider overleden.
Een man die groots was op zijn eigen manier en die vocht voor een beter Zuid Afrika, voor een betere wereld. Madiba – Nelson Mandela.
Zoals hij zo mooi zei “It Always seems impossible until its done”.
Een aantal quotes:
“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.”
“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.”
“Lead from the back — and let others believe they are in front.”
“The greatest glory in living
lies not in never falling,
but in rising every time we fall.”
“It is said that no one truly knows a nation until one has been inside its jails. A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens, but its lowest ones.”
“After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.”
Een man die niet vergeten zal worden.
