Transcript of Nelson Mandela
First president of South Africa 1994
From prison to a beloved person and president
"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall"
He fought for equal rights between human beings, no matter what colour youre skin had, no matter what religion you wished to practise, he dedicated his whole life by claming that everybody has the same rights. He spent 27 years in prison because of this belief.
"We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right."
"Overcoming poverty is not an act of charity, it is an act of justice."
"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."
