It’s the great man’s 95th birthday today and last year he trended worldwide as THE greatest living human being…well he’s a year older and guess what, nothing has changed. He’s still THE greatest living human being.
Happy birthday Madiba.
Still my favourite picture of the legend.
And of course my favourite quote:
“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people, I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if it needs be it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”
That has to go go down as one of the gretest quotes of all time.
Keep Calm and Mandela On.
