Nelson Mandela Quote: “There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested...”
Nelson Mandela Quote: “People respond in accordance to how you relate to them. If you approach them on the basis of violence, that’s how they’ll react. But if you say, ‘We want peace, we want stability,’ we can then do a lot of things that will contribute towards the progress of our society.”
Nelson Mandela Quote: “It was during those long and lonely years that my hunger for the freedom of my own people became a hunger for the freedom of all people, white and black. I knew as well as I knew anything that the oppressor must be liberated just as surely as the oppressed.”

Nelson Mandela Quote: “Of course we desire education and we think it is a good thing, but you don’t have to have education in order to know that you want certain fundamental rights, you have got aspirations, you have got acclaims. It has nothing to do with education whatsoever.”

Nelson Mandela Quote: “We are extricating ourselves from a system that insulted our common humanity by dividing us from one another on the basis of race and setting us against each other as oppressed and oppressor. That system committed a crime against humanity.”
Nelson Mandela Quote: “I knew as well as I knew anything that the oppressor must be liberated just as surely as the oppressed.”

Nelson Mandela Quote: “The UN took a strong stand against apartheid; and over the years, an international consensus was built, which helped to bring an end to this iniquitous system. But we know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.”
Nelson Mandela Quote: “We signal that good can be achieved amongst human beings who are prepared to trust, prepared to believe in the goodness of people.”
