Last night, in his home surrounded by family and friends, Nelson Mandela, the renowned South African president and human rights leader, passed away at 95. To remember his life and legacy, 4E has compiled a list of some of Mandela’s most uplifting quotes.
“A good leader can engage in a debate frankly and thoroughly, knowing that at the end he and the other side must be closer, and thus emerge stronger. You don’t have that idea when you are arrogant, superficial and uninformed.”
“It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.”
