Today saw the passing of Nelson Mandela, one of the most influential people of the 20th century. With this in mind I share the following quote:

long walk to freedomNo 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.

From Long Walk to Freedom: Autobiography of Nelson Mandela

  1. As Rainbow Rowell said in her tweet, Nelson Mandela is truly one of those people who were able to make this world a better place. RIP Mr. Mandela.

    Great quote for today 🙂
