We believe in them

Politicians’ efforts are always included in the making of a country. They take an oath to serve the country and its people, and they serve. Involuntary or voluntary they are adorned with: money, power and fame. They serve us in many ways. We believe in them. We, believe them.

And then there are other people like bus drivers, fire fighters, plumbers, rescue workers, mill workers, waiters, labours, farmers and many more who are also involved in the making of a country. They take no official oath to serve the people of the country and yet, they serve. Involuntary or voluntary they are always deprived of money, they don’t have power and fame is not theirs to own. They serve us in many ways. We believe in them. We believe them.

Nelson Mandela- the strength of his nation

Nelson Mandela: a true visionary, a great leader, a great speaker, an optimists. He was a diamond with different facets that shone its light across the world.He was a father of his nation. As his nation and the world mourns at the loss of such a great personality, I truly pay my respect to him.

May his soul rest in eternal peace. I’ve just gathered a few quotes of this remarkable person that 21st century has ever produced.

 

NM1

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

 

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

 

“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.”

 

“A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.”

 

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

NM4

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”

 

“Lead from the back — and let others believe they are in front.”

 

“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”

 

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

NM3

“I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.”

 

“Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”

 

“I am the captain of my soul.”
