    At his trial in the 60s
    During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to see realised. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die


    Speech after release from jail
    I greet you all in the name of peace, democracy and freedom for all. I stand here before you not as a prophet but as a humble servant of you, the people. Your tireless and heroic sacrifices have made it possible for me to be here today. I therefore place the remaining years of my life in your hands.



    On racism
    No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

    He died at the ripe age of 95 and achieved alot in his life.

    Not really sure why alot of people act like it's a tragedy - i'd be happy do die half as contend as he (hopefully) did.

    R.I.P good sir, you never were defeated nor were you dreamless and your vision was off pure generational thinking

    what you have done has helped a generation of minds to think and spread your great word of peace

    A lot of people compare his death to paul walkers and claim that his death is more unfortunate. All death is unfortunate, yet the guy lived for 95 years, of course its a shame he wasted 27 of them in prison but he fought for what he thought it was worth fighting for and I think he is glad they way he performed in life, everybody dies and daying at such an age is not unfortunate, he was a good guy and did much for politics and for peoples freedom. I think he died peacefully and naturally, the way it is supposed to be. Paul walker might not have been a person dedicated to politics and worldwide issues yet he was a great actor and a nice person, he indeed died in a tragic way due to a collision of a super car and he did not die due to a disease in his bed, he crashed and burned to death. Paul walker died a more tragic death while nelson mandela died the way it is supposed to be yet we cant compare their achievements and say who is better as both individuals were very different.

    Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela
