Mandela - Dari Artist

Our Beloved Tata

There are so many men and women who hold no distinctive positions but whose contribution towards the development of society has been enormous.? - Nelson Mandela

Enkosi Kakhulu Hamba Kahle Tat' Umadiba

Inspiration: 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
Nelson Mandela chose to be buried near his home village of Qunu in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. He never forgot where he came from and that as a youth he tended the animals. Later in life he loved sitting at his window and looking at the rolling hills, he loved gardening, he loved reading. Nelson Mandela loved. He was such a special human being and we need to make sure his life and struggles were not in vain by continuing to educate. He is my role model. To Madiba; my gratitude, my love and my promise that I will never stop spreading your wisdom as long as there is air in my lungs and art in my heart. Enkosi Tata, Uhambe kakuhle.

Education For A Better Future

Inspiration: Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farmworkers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.

- Nelson Mandela

No country can really develop unless its citizens are educated.

- Nelson Mandela

As June approaches, with its graduation ceremonies and speeches, a thought suggests itself... Whatever career you may choose for yourself doctor, lawyer, teacher let me propose an avocation to be pursued along with it. Become a dedicated fighter for civil rights. Make it a central part of your life. It will make you a better doctor, a better lawyer, a better teacher. It will enrich your spirit as nothing else possibly can. It will give you that rare sense of nobility that can only spring from love and selflessly helping your fellow man. Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for human rights. You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in. -- Martin Luther King, Jr., 18th April, 1959

Inspirational Men

Original painting SOLD:

Inspiration: Both Nelson Mandela and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. were deeply inspired by Gandhi Announcing the ANC election victory, Johannesburg (2 May 1994)

The calm and tolerant atmosphere that prevailed during the elections depicts the type of South Africa we can build. It set the tone for the future. We might have our differences, but we are one people with a common destiny in our rich variety of culture, race and tradition. People have voted for the party of their choice and we respect that. This is democracy.

I hold out a hand of friendship to the leaders of all parties and their members, and ask all of them to join us in working together to tackle the problems we face as a nation. An ANC government will serve all the people of South Africa, not just ANC members. - Nelson Mandela

Let no man pull you so low as to hate him. Martin Luther King Jr., A Knock at Midnight: Inspiration from the Great Sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. If we are to reach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children. - Mahatma Gandhi, 19th November 1921

Once one assumes an attitude of intolerance, there is no knowing where it will take one. Intolerance, someone has said, is violence to the intellect and hatred is violence to the heart. - Mahatma Gandhi, 1942

Nonviolence is a powerful and just weapon, which cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals - Martin Luther King, Jr.
