Nelson Mandela by Dari Artist

Inspiration: As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Nelson Mandela

Any man or institution that tries to rob me of my dignity will lose. - Nelson Mandela

I have never regarded any man as my superior, either in my life outside or inside prison. Nelson Mandela on equality, From a letter to General Du Preez, Commissioner of Prisons, Written on Robben Island, Cape Town, South Africa (12 July 1976).

A leader. . .is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.
Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom

It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership. Nelson Mandela

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but building the new - Socrates

Inspiration: I realized that they could take everything from me except my mind and my heart. They could not take those things. Those things I still had control over. And I decided not to give them away.
