Nelson Mandela

Standard
We are watching  “Invictus” tonight  so I thought I would post some great quotes from Nelson Mandela whom I greatly admire.
 
Opening of the movie, a newspaper headline reads “He can win an election but can he run a country”, His body guard responds, “One day on the job…”  He responds, “It’s a valid question”.    (Not that whole conversation really happened….it’s a movie)  😀
 
“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. “
 
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. ”

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart. “
“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. ”

“There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.”

“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. ”

“There is no such thing as part freedom. “

“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered”

    In 1652, Jan van Riebeeck made a covenant with God, that South Africa would become the torch-bearer of Jesus Christ and, ever since, there was a diabolical effort to thwart this.

    Karl Marx’s sister married Cape Town lawyer Jan Juta and that is how Marx got an inroad into the media. His ideologies were accepted by the wealthy Cape English and Jews. It was the FIRST organization in South Africa to EXCLUDE blacks by virtue of its constitution.

    Marx, however, saw that changed after he had convinced SACP leaders to include blacks and exploit them as FREE SOLDIERS by means of violent strikes and riots.

    The white Afrikaner, outnumbered 10:1, foresaw terrible oppression and totalitarian atheist control. Their REACTION to the black violence and riots around 1860, together witrh their experience with British usurpers and oppressors, is what had given rise to apartheid.

    APARTHEID WAS THE DIRECT RESULT OF BLACK RACISM AND CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE. IT WAS NOT BORN OUT OF HATE FOR THE BLACK MAN BUT AN ACT OF SELF-DEFENSE.

    Nelson Mandela had sided with Soviet and Communist Chinese leaders and fought side by side with the antichrist, but gets hailed as the world’s greatest statesman ever. This is factually incorrect as his hands are dripping with the blood of so many blacks tortured and brutally killed in Camp Quadro and others across Africa.
