Remembering Nelson Mandela: 5 quotes

By: Jennifer Gruden
Today South African President Jacob Zuma announced that Nelson Mandela has died. President Zuma stated "We saw in him what we seek in ourselves." To honour such a great member of the world community for peace, here are 5 of our favourite quotes from Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela "If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy." "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." "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." "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." "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." Please feel free to share your thoughts or quotes in the comments.
