Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela: In full, “Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice, like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”

Yesterday I was thinking about Nelson Mandela and I came across this amasing quote today and I just thought of how inspiring he is. He spent nearly 22 years in prison that is such a long time and he was punished for something he believed in. I think we all need to take something from him as he managed to forgive all those people who were so horrible to him and sent him to prison for doing what was right and some of us can't even forgive a friend <3
