Nelson Mandela, the iconic South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician, has left a lasting legacy through his powerful words and actions. Here are seven of his most famous quotes:
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."
"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."
"It always seems impossible until it's done."
"Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again."
"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."
"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."
