Nelson Mandella Quote

  • December 23, 2014

Nelson Mandela (2008)
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. ― Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom

    We were all loving before circumstances changed us for better or for worse. This quote is quite true – and sadly some people have forgotten all about it for the sake of the beliefs being ingrained upon them as they grew older.

    I believe that as a child without have any biases. We just all learn these things from the environment that we grew up to.

    I agree!!! As they day just as humans are capable of destruction we are or should be capable of love even more. Cheesy yes but that is what we truly need admit it or not.

    Hate will never do you any good. Love will always win above all else. Spread love and not hate.

    I wish humans can just leave hatred and cling only to love. It will make alot of sense than hatred.

    The best thing about Nelson Mandela is that he didn’t just tell people things to do, but he also proactively led by example. Its more natural to love than to hate. Great quote.

    Amazing quote from Nelson Mandela. I love all his quotes. He was one of the best promoter of peaceful coexistence, in a world where racism is not tolerated.
