My tribute to NELSON MANDELA

Today there's nothing else to write about but the passing of NELSON MANDELA.
.....i write this tribute because I never met this great man, oh that really hurts. I will console myself with his inspiring quotes. Oh well, Obama also met him for the first time in May 2005 so dear Teni it's ok. Don't feel too bad.

For the first time I can't find words to express myself. I do feel a huge loss as I also never met Madiba. I grew up with his quotes, works and extraordinary leadership. He lived well and left a legacy. I am inspired by his life which was all about not living in fear but facing his challenges headstrong and conquering it.

I know 27 yrs in prison must have broken him to the true legend he was. If I met him I would have asked him how he managed to miss almost three decades of his life, how he was able to forgive and still catch up with Life.

Madiba, your message of peace, truth, freedom and hope lives on with me and the entire world even in the hearts of generation unborn. Sleep on Madiba. The world will miss you greatly. Rest in the bosom of your lord. 

Thank you 'Tata'. Such greatness! I salute you. 

My top Nelson Mandela quote will be 'it always seem impossible until it's done'. What's yours?

  1. My top Mandela's quote are: 1) If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.

    2) 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

  2. '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'

  3. My top Mandela quote is 'A winner is a dreamer who never gives up'. This quotes always keep me going especially during trying times.

  4. “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
    - Nelson Mandela
