Tribute: Nelson Mandela

posted by Nell Minow

Nelson Mandela, one of the most inspiring figures of modern history, died yesterday and the world joins together in mourning his loss and paying tribute to his courage, integrity, and vision.  There are many movie portrayals of this extraordinary man, including two new films this year, but today we need to him speak for himself.

“Social equality is the only basis of human happiness.”

“Difficulties break some men but make others.”

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

“I came to accept that I have no right whatsoever to judge others in terms of my own customs.”

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

“Lead from the back — and let others believe they are in front.”

“Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”

“I hate race discrimination most intensely and in all its manifestations. I have fought it all during my life; I fight it now, and will do so until the end of my days.”

“A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.”

May his memory be a blessing and may it inspire all of us to take up his great work and carry it forward.
