Nelson Mandela: In His Own Words

Remember and share the revolutionary leader's inspiring life lessons

"No one is born hating another person because of the color 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."
– South African revolutionary Nelson Mandela, in his 1995 autobiography Long Walk to Freedom, which was largely penned in secret while he was imprisoned for 27 years by the country's apartheid regime
