Some of his quotes:
“Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”
In his autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom, Mandela tells the story of his early engagement with Christianity: "The Church was as concerned with this world as the next: I saw that virtually all of the achievements of Africans seemed to have come about through the missionary work of the Church."
"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." "And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same."
