A Quote By Nelson Mandela

“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.” – Nelson Mandela

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela is a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999.

  1. What were 2 conflicts that appear in the book. And what were to significant quotes?

  2. Thanks, I’m almost finished!! 😀 still have to do jack the ripper too so any help with that would be great too!
    thanks
    “I have a dream” isn’t that Martin Luther King, not Nelson Mandela?

  3. I looked it up online and saw Nelson Mandela, but as much as I respect this figure, I think someone may have first said it earlier than him. Thanks for your help!

  4. A Q I asked yesterday sparked an debate between two responders. This quote started it:
    “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – Benjamin Franklin
    A woman responded that security is always more important than liberty. Her exact words “Regardless of what male supremacists say, PHYSICAL SAFETY is always more important than civil liberties.”

    I added this to my additional details:
    As for your rantings about safety and security, do you realize those “white male supremacists” who signed the Declaration of Independence essentially signed their own death warrant? They were risking their lives (physical safety) for the purpose of liberty such that you and I can be trolling on the internet as we are right here?

    Now about another example: Nelson Mandela. He risked his physical safety for the purpose of liberty.

    Another example? Steven Biko.

    Another example? Rosa Parks. Don’t you think she was worried about being assaulted by those who didn’t believe in her cause?
    ——————
    This exchange made me wonder if many women really feel that giving up liberty for the sake of security is a good thing.
    BQ: Do many men think the same way?

  5. I’m a senior this year and in our yearbook we have to have a quote that will go beside our picture. It can be a quote or a message. It doesn’t have to be like a famous quote but I have no clue what to say. I’ve been thinking for days and I can’t come up with anything so I need some ideas. The quote will be there forever so I need a really good quote. 10 points for the best answer (:

  6. “I never thought that a life sentence truly meant life and that I would die behind bars” This quote is from part eight of Nelson Mandela’s book, long walk to freedom. I need the page number please! My exam is starting soon and I don’t have my book!

  7. “Happiness DEMANDS giving up all hope of a better past” – Nelson Mandela.

    I stumbled across this quote and thought it might be good advice. Wishing the past were different may be destroying our chances of happiness now or in the future.

  8. WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU FACE DEFEAT?

    It’s my speech topic and i need some ideas. Thanks.

    i was thinking of quoting part od miley cyrus’s song the climb do you think that would be good?

  9. I’m graduating the eighth grade, and we have a tradition at my school for the graduating class to order a banner with a quote on it to represent their class and to hang up in the gym. Does anyone know some good quotes? PLEASE help! 🙂 Thank you!!!!!

  10. I’m looking for some inspirational quotes of these topics:

    1. Love
    2. Wisdom
    3. Courage
    4. Knowledge
    5. Betrayal
    6. Jelousy
    7. Endurance
    8. Curiousity
    9. etc.

    Any suggestions?

    P.S. – Please state your source, if you can.

  11. In the first chapter of the movie, Nelson Mandela’s sister says that he was born a leader, and showed his excellent leadership skills even when he was a little kid. Can somebody give me the exact quote she said that? Also, who is the director?

  12. I’m suffering from an addiction I’m trying to break, sometimes I need a little motivation when it feels impossible to get through. Have any good, famous quotes that I can look at?
    Nothing religious for crying out loud.

  13. There is nothing like going back to the places that remain unchanged to see how you have changed.

    Nelson Mandela

  14. 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.
    (Nelson Mandela)

    -Does it mean that if you speak “wolof” to a senegalese, west african man that it will go through his heart instead of say French, alanguage that he understands?

  15. The quote is, “There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to discover the ways you yourself have altered.”
    Again, i want to know what speech this quote came from.

  16. “There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.” Does anybody know the meaning of this quote?

  17. Okay, well i’m doing a sose assingment on Nelson Mandela.
    And yes, there are alot of confusing explanations, And what civil rights did he provide?

  18. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
    It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us…

    ?

  19. What are specific examples of what he did to help South Africa while he was president other than the world cup in 2010?

  20. “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.” This is a famous quote from Nelson Mandela, can you describe it for me.

  21. im in grade 12…. dont know what to say…..

    this quote goes beside my face in the year book..

    any ideas people?

  22. I have to hand in a grad write up and I need a funny quote for it…This will be read outloud infront of over 500 people so it needs to be somewhat clean..and would be also good if it involved school or graduating somehow.

  23. There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in whcih you yourself have altered.”
    What does it mean? What do you think about it?

  24. I need an opening statement, something we’ve all heard before to start an essay i’m writing right now. The topic is “to what extent have democracies and the process of globalization contributed to the growth of human rights?”

    I’m so confused on how to start? Any arrosing statements i can link back to that topic?

    thanks!

  25. “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate; our deepest dear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, who am i to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. we were born to make maifest the glory of god that is within us. and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

    Nelson Mandela

    My question is EXPLAIN WHAT THIS QUOTE MEANS TO YOU. WHAT IS IT SAYING TO YOU? DESCRIBE WHAT IT MAKES YOU FEEL WANT TO DO OR SAY AND HOW IT MAKES YOU FEEL. TRY TO GIVE ATLEAST 5-7 SENTENCES.

  26. What does this quote from Nelson Mandela mean?
    Is it good or bad, I dont understand it

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

  38. I’m doing an essay on why unjust laws should NOT be followed and 1 of my reasons is that if we follow them without any form of protesting or rebellion then there would probably be more unjust laws made. I need a quote from a famous person but I can’t find 1 to support my reasoning. The quote does not have to do with unjust laws it just needs to state something like if you don’t protest against something it will keep happening. Please just state the quote and who said it. Thanks! ALSO any tips or suggestions will help my essay prompt is “Should people have to follow laws that are unjust”
