What is Your Favorite Nelson Mandela Quote?
Google “Nelson Mandela Quotes.” There are hundreds of inspirational quotes from Mandela. What words of wisdom from this greatest of men inspires you? Answer if you would like in the comment section. A quote that I read on many sites that particularly resonates with me is the following:
“I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. 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.”
“A fundamental concern for others in our individual and community lives would go a long way in making the world the better place we so passionately dreamt of.”
“I like friends who have independent minds because they tend to make you see problems from all angles.”
