Nelson Mandela quotes to inspire young people

Here are some of Nelson Mandela’s greatest quotes.

Education

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

Courage

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.

Communication

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.

Leadership

It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.

Freedom

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.

Peace

If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.

Think Big

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.

Obstacles

After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.

Determination

It always seems impossible until it’s done.

There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.

Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another.

In my country, we go to prison first and then become President.

Children and Society

There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.
