10 Inspiring Educational Quotes by Nelson Mandela

  • I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities.
  • Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
  • The power of education extends beyond the development of skills we need for economic success. It can contribute to nation-building and reconciliation.
  • A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.
  • Young people must take it upon themselves to ensure that they receive the highest education possible so that they can represent us well in future as future leaders.
  • Without language, one cannot talk to people and understand them; one cannot share their hopes and aspirations, grasp their history, appreciate their poetry, or savour their songs.
  • No country can really develop unless its citizens are educated.
  • Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.
  • It is not beyond our power to create a world in which all children have access to a good education. Those who do not believe this have small imaginations.
  • 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.
