Nelson Mandela’s Education:

Nelson Mandela went to these schools and universities before his death:

Healdtown comprehensive school: (1937 - 1939)
University of Fort Hare: (1939 - 1940)

He studied Law, so that he could help people and become a lawyer.

Here are some of Nelson Mandela’s quotes:
‘Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice all for the freedom for their people’
‘After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb’
‘It always seems impossible, until it’s done’
‘If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then they become your partner’
‘A good head and heart is always a formidable combination’
‘If you talk in a language someone understands, it goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, it goes to his heart’

On the 5 of December 2013, we lost a very powerful man with a lot of inspiring quotes, named Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela died because of a lung infection. He was sent to a Prison on Robben Island in 1963, and he was released in 1990. He was imprisoned  for almost 3 decades. South Africa has lost a very great man that changed the world after he became president. Nelson Mandela was born on the 18 of July 1918 and died on the 5th of December 2013 , aged 95.
