Here are 11 of Nelson Mandela’s most inspirational quotes
“Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.”
“It always seems impossible, until it is done.”
“Lead from the back – and let others believe they are in front.”
"I have always believed exercise is a key not only to physical health but to peace of mind."
“I am fundamentally an optimist. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.”
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
“Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”
“I like friends who have independent minds because they tend to make you see problems from all angles.”
“No one is born hating another person because of the colour 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.”
