Nelson Mandela 1918-2013

In memory of a grand man. He has given us a legacy of human dignity we should cherish.

Thank you, Madiba!

 

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”

“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”

Mandela’s statement, Supreme court of South Africa, Pretoria, April 20 1964
