18 July – Nelson Mandela Day

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela’s vision for the future was a society grounded on change, hard work, integrity, tolerance and friendship. We have to carry this legacy forward.

Here are some excerpts from Mandela’s book The Long Walk to Freedom published in 1995. We should always keep these words of wisdom in our minds.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

“A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.”

“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
