More quotes from Nelson Mandela

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

On Al Jazeera News, I was watching part of Mandela's commemoration in Johannesburg. I wish I could have been there...

Here are some more of his famous quotes:

"Lead from the back and let others believe they are in front."


"There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living."


"Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies".


"One of the tings I learned when I was negotiating was that until I changed myself, I could not change others."


"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."


"Where you stand depends on where you sit."
