My Top 10 Nelson Mandela Quotes

1. Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

2. 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.

3. If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.

4. If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.

5. There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children.

6. It always seems impossible until its done.

7. 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.

8. There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.


9. Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.

10. 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.
