Daily Quote and Reflection: Tribute to Nelson Mandela

 

Daily Quote :

“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.”

 Nelson Mandela

Reflection:

As President Obama said on Thursday on the passing of Nelson Mandela ” As a leader he achieved more than could be expected of any man… we’ve lost one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with,” Obama said. “He no longer belongs to us, he belongs to the ages … His commitment to transfer power and reconcile with those who jailed him set an example that all humanity should aspire to.”

“I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life,” Obama continued, citing his own protests against apartheid as one of his first political actions. “I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example set by Nelson Mandela.”

Obama continued, “We will not likely see the likes of Nelson Mandela again.” See more at
