Nelson Mandela has passed away in Johannesburg at 5pm EST. The news was confirmed by South African President Jacob Zuma. He was critically ill for the last six months. The anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician served President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999, after spending 27 years in Robben Island prison.

“Quitting is leading too.”
“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.”
“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”

“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”
“Courageous people do not fear forgiving for the sake of peace.”
“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
“In my country we go to prison first and then become President.”
