Thoughtful Thursday: Mandela and Changing the World

Nelson Mandela education quote

Having heard the sad news that former South African President and activist Nelson Mandela passed away at the age of 95, it seemed appropriate to repost this beautiful quote about the importance of a solid education as a tool with which to change the world.

Left behind was a legacy of peace-building and love for all mankind. This quote encapsulates Mandela in the way that it accentuates the necessity to teach and to learn, to inspire and to be inspired, and in the face of difficulty and maliciousness, to help change and to be changed. As the world continues without the physical presence of Nelson Mandela, his teachings will continue to persist.

The most important lesson that Mandela has taught us, however, was never directly said by him, but was inspired by him: if one man could help change the course of a country, imagine what all of us could do.
