Nelson Mandela Quotes

As a tribute to Nelson Mandela, I put together a comprehensive collection of the best Nelson Mandela quotes:

Nelson Mandela Quotes

It’s a pretty extreme collection, organized by key themes like compassion, courage and conviction, and humility.

One of the things that surprised me is how much Mandela was about fulfillment and self-actualization.  I knew the freedom and equality focus, as well as the leadership focus, but I hadn’t realized how many great words of wisdom and pithy prose he had about making the most of what you’ve got, as well as rising above your circumstances.

He really exemplified the idea of “follow your growth.”

So whether you’re building your building your knowledge base for personal development or leadership insights, Nelson Mandela’s quotes should be a great fit for your collection.

Here are a few of my favorite Nelson Mandela quotes:

  1. “Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.”
  2. “Quitting is leading too.”
  3. “Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”

Here is the my full set of Nelson Mandela quotes.  

Please share them with anybody you think will benefit or needs a pick me up or some little lift for their day.
