For Men Only: Remembering Nelson Mandela

(WXTX) -

With the passing of world icon and former South African President Nelson Mandela, we wanted to focus on this great man in his own words, for our For Men Only report, and he had to lot to say in his full life.

Some of his well-known quotes include:

"It always seems impossible until it's done."

"I like friends who have independent minds because they tend to make you see problems from all angles."

"Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice all for the freedom of their people."

"Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do."

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."

"Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies."

"Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again."

"I hate race discrimination most intensely and in all its manifestations."

He is a man that will long be looked up to. Email me anytime, to jdennis@wxtx.com with comments on this weekly segment or ideas for For Men Only, which airs Thursday nights on Fox 54 News at 10.
