Quotes of Nelson Mandela

There are only a handful of  men & women on this earth who became the Masters of the situation and sacrificed their whole lives for the good will of fellow human beings.

Martin Luther King (Jr) from The United states of America, Mahatma Gandhi of India, 14th  Dalai Lama in Exile , Mother Theresa of India , Aung San Suu kyi  of  Burma ,  Pakistani  school girl Malala  Yousafzai  and  Nelson Mandela (Madeba) are few of them.

While I type, the nonagenarian  Nelson Mandela of South Africa  is fighting  for  his life in a hospital.

I would like to share some of Nelson Mandela’s quotes below.

which you can use to change the World”

there are many more hills to climb.”


“If you want to make peace with your enemy,

you have to work with your enemy. Then he

becomes your partner.”


“A good head and a good heart are

always a formidable combination”
