After 95 years, Nelson Mandela has closed his eyes for the last time. I wanted to pay homage to one of my heroes as I was making my way in this world. Here are some of my personal favorite quotes from him:
1.) There is no such thing as part freedom
2.) There are many people who feel that it is useless and futile to continue talking about peace and non-violence against a government whose only reply is a savage on an unarmed and defenseless people.
3.) Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world
4.) In my country, we go to prison first, then become President
5.) There are times when a leader must move out ahead of the flock, go off in a new direction, confident that he is leading his people the right way.
...and lastly and with my flag at half mast: Any man or institution that tries to rob me of my dignity will lose. 1918-2013 With respect from your friends and admirers in Palo Alto
