I'm happy he lived a long, full life, and that he was able to accomplish great things, and actually see the results of many of his great accomplishments. But we are less as a result of our loss today.

Thank you for everything, Mr. Mandela.

Today we lost a great man. It is not a day to mourn his loss, but to celebrate his life.

RIP Tata Madiba

"When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw."

"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."

"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."

Maybe people who object to a society in which people are treated fairly?

I don't know, but the same question occurred to me.

Vale Nelson Mandela. The man who never learnt to hate.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color 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." -Long Walk to Freedom: The Autobiography of Nelson Mandela
