His Excellency Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

My collection of Nelson Mandela’s quotes…..

A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.

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.

It always seems impossible until its done.

Difficulties break some men but make others. No axe is sharp enough to cut the soul of a sinner who keeps on trying, one armed with the hope that he will rise even in the end.

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice all for the freedom of their people.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

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.

Lead from the back — and let others believe they are in front.

Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.

If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.

There is no passion to be found playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.

After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.

Freedom & Life!

I prefer ‘Short life with Freedom’ to ‘Long life with Little Freedom’.

Morals, Good men, Evil, History, and Guard

When morals decline, and good men do nothing, evil flourishes. The society unwilling to learn from past is doomed. We must never forget our history. We must never lower our guard. — from J. Edgar movie.

Yes this is exactly what is happening in India.

When morals decline – No doubt there is a great decline of morals in India.

Good men do nothing – A few good men are working on the issues of the system, rest are either very busy with their personal issues or feared of the leader’s power.

Evil flourishes – Evil already flourished and is growing strong day by day………

The society unwilling to learn from past is doomed. We must never forget our history – We consider that our history is great and is full of great people and we tell ourselves that those great leaders are born great and we can’t become great……..Strictly speaking there is no point of greatness here, we got to do our duty. We didn’t forgot our leaders but we forgot the fundamental ideas of those leaders. Freedom fighters sacrificed their personal lives when country is struggling under British rule. We didn’t learned anything from them……..we know Indian system is struggling today to do a good job, whatever the reason for the struggle be. We are not ready to sacrifice our personal life/goals to help our country to run well. And so, there is a strong possibility for “India is doomed”.

We must never lower our guard – Guard is something that protects us…..Constitution is what protecting us, and very few Indians understand, and take pride in that. Every one lost hope on the democracy, I heard several different sentences, several times which lower our constitution. It is something like a helplessness of people, they give-up and starts living with it. They don’t realize that constitution have given many ways to fight against the evil to improve the system. Only thing is we got to believe it and need to sacrifice some personal emotions.

Hope people of India start spending some of their personal time in improving our system either by creating awareness in the people or buy fighting for some changes in the system.
