Quote from Nelson Mandela,

Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement.

“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison.” 

“As I have said, the first thing is to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself... Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty, but humility.” 

“It is said that no one truly knows a nation until one has been inside its jails. A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens, but it's lowest ones” 
Nelson MandelaLong Walk to Freedom

“Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great, you can be that generation” 

“We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.” 
Nelson Mandela

“I have never cared very much for personal prizes. A person does not become a freedom fighter in the hope of winning awards.” 
Nelson MandelaLong Walk to Freedom

“There is a universal respect and even admiration for those who are humble and simple by nature, and who have absolute confidence in all human beings irrespective of their social status.” 
Nelson MandelaConversations With Myself

“No single person can liberate a country. You can only liberate a country if you act as a collective.” 

“What freedom am I being offered while the organization of the people remains banned?  Only free men can negotiate,prisoners can't enter in contracts” 

“Success in politics demands that you must take your people into confidence about your views and state them very clearly, very politely, very calmly, but nevertheless, state them openly.” 
Nelson MandelaConversations With Myself

“There is no such thing as part freedom”
