I know that others can write better about how Nelson Mandela stood up for his people and how he managed to change the world but I guess that takes a lot of reading and being at that time and era. So aside from any of that. I am going to write about what I personally learned from Nelson Mandela. To start things of, here is some of my favourites quotes from Nelson Mandela :
“It always seems impossible until its done.”
“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.”
“After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.”
“To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.”
Though the most important lesson that I learned was to never give up even under the worst circumstances. He spent 27 years of his life in prison in an island because of his race and ideologies but he didn’t give up.
