Nelson Mandela

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.

“Long Walk to Freedom” (1995), an autobiography  based on a manuscript written in prison by Nelson Mandela, anti-apartheid activist, South African president, Nobel Peace Prize laureate (18 July 1918 – 2013)

Nessuno nasce odiando un’altra persona a causa del colore della pelle, del background o della  religione. Le persone devono imparare a odiare e, se possono imparare a odiare, si può insegnare loro ad amare, perché l’amore giunge nel cuore umano in modo più naturale del suo opposto.

  2. An insightful quote from one who paid a high price in life. How anyone could remain that hopeful throughout his persecution is an inspiration to us all. Thanks for sharing Luisa. Allan

  3. Nelson Mandela. Great legends like him are rare to find. He, like Mahatma Gandhi, taught us how to live. I salute him. Thank you so much, dear Luisa for sharing this precious quote from Long Walk to Freedom. A truly great post. ♥️♥️😊😊🌹🌹🌹

  4. Uno studio presentato anni fa (purtroppo non ricordo dove l’ho letto) mostrava come i bambini piccoli (2-8 anni) non notino nemmeno la differenza della colorazione della pelle, dato che per loro è normale che ognuno sia diverso dall’altro per qualche motivo più o meno evidente.

  5. Again, thank you dear Luisa. You share so much that touch us all. Nelson Mandela was a remarkable man
    and the quote you given today is a gift from him but also from you. I already believed in the sentiment he expresses but never been able to say it so beautifully.:))

  6. E poi dare amore, fare felice gli altri dà sempre benefici e tranquillità

    VANTAGGI  A  DARE  FELICITÀ  
     
    Fare felici gli altri offre vantaggi
    ovviamente a questi, ma ne dà
    puranco a te, in quanto non ingaggi
    lotta così per tua tranquillità. 
     
    Perciò felicità in generale
    ci sia, e pure tu sarai sereno, 
    non agitato, da che il sole sale
    a quando della luna si fa il pieno. 
     
    Non so se tu concordi, so però
    che ciò che scrivo no, non sono balle,
    ma frutto di esperienza perché l’ho
     
    visto e stravisto: dalle cime a valle
    chiunque sia felice (anche un po’)
    non viene mai a romperti le palle!

    (Cassandro)

  8. Luisa, that was an excellent book and a recommended read. In so many ways he could have hated his oppressors, but he didn’t. He was quite remarkable indeed. Thanks so much for mentioning him on what would have been his 95th birthday. 🙏🏼 Enjoy your day my friend! 🌞💐😊🌺🥰
