Only respect comes in our minds when we think of Nelson Mandela. And why shouldn't it?
He spent 27 years in prison before becoming the first black President of South Africa. Loved by one and all, he was affectionately known as Madiba, which comes from a chief who ruled in the 18th century. A Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Mandela was revered for his efforts towards peaceful termination of the Apartheid regime (system of racial discrimination).
To think that such discrimination and segregation existed so openly till the 1990s! Well, there's no doubt that such leaders are what the world needs even today.
On the occasion of Mandela Day, his birthday, we bring you some of his best quotes.
