Nelson Mandela, first black President of South Africa, would have been his 96th birthday today. He died at the age of 95 in December 2013. He was one of the greatest man ever lived. He also received a Nobel Prize along with Frederik Willem de Klerk in 1993 for "for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa".

As the years rolled by, Nelson inspired the world with his words of wisdom; I've shared some of the quotes by him :-

~ "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."

~ "It always seems impossible until it’s done."

~ "Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do."

~ "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

~ "We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right."

~ "When people are determined they can overcome anything."
