A happy 92nd birthday to Nelson Mandela, the Nobel laureate, Sage and formidable man from South Africa. He is my idol and an inspiration for his grit, determination and above all patience and compassion.
Some of his memorable quotes –
- 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.
- After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
- There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.
He is loved and admired all over the world. May he continue to live long.
I am happy to share the same zodiac sign as him – Cancer.
