This Week's Celebrity Quote by Nelson Mandela Who Turns 93 Today!

In celebration of his 93rd Birthday and in remembrance of his devotion and struggle to free South Africa from Apartheid we are featuring our favorite quotes from Nelson Mandela, each addressing issues such as peace, love and eradicating poverty.

Nelson Mandela Quotes:

"As I have said, the first thing is to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself... Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty, but humility." 

"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."

"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."
