South Africa’s first black president Nelson Mandela died peacefully at his home at the age of 95. Although the Nobel Peace Prize winner passed away, he left us a number of uplifting and revolutionary words.

Following are 20 most inspirational Nelson Mandela quotes that personify his spirit.

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

“It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.”

“It is said that no one truly knows a nation until one has been inside its jails. A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens, but its lowest ones.”

“It always seems impossible until its done.”

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

“A fundamental concern for others in our individual and community lives would go a long way in making the world the better place we so passionately dreamt of.”

“If the United States of America or Britain is having elections, they don’t ask for observers from Africa or from Asia. But when we have elections, they want observers.”

“Courage is not the absence of fear — it is inspiring others to move beyond it.”

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

“Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will.”

“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.”

“Today we are entering a new era for our country and its people. Today we celebrate not the victory of a party, but a victory for all the people of South Africa.”

“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.”

“We recall our terrible past so that we can deal with it, to forgive where forgiveness is necessary, without forgetting; to ensure that never again will such inhumanity tear us apart; and to move ourselves to eradicate a legacy that lurks dangerously as a threat to our democracy.”

“I never think of the time I have lost. I just carry out a programme because it’s there. It’s mapped out for me.”

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

“In my country we go to prison first and then become president.”

“A good pen can also remind us of the happiest moments in our lives, bring noble ideas into our dens, our blood and our souls. It can turn tragedy into hope and victory.”

“We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.”

“I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.”

Bill Clinton is one the greatest presidents of the United States. In 2012, he was among ten best presidents of the country since 1900, along with Barack Obama, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and Franklin D. Roosevelt, to name a few.

Following are top 20 quotes from Bill Clinton that can inspire you.

“Sometimes I feel like the fire hydrant looking at a pack of dogs. For six years I had declined to tell those kinds of jokes, because I have been told it is not presidential. But I feel kind of outdoorsy today.”

“No wonder Americans hate politics when, year in and year out, they hear politicians make promises that won’t come true because they don’t even mean them – campaign fantasies that win elections but don’t get nations moving again.”

“Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel.”

“Being president is like running a cemetery: you’ve got a lot of people under you and nobody’s listening.”

“If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.”

“You can’t blame your opponents for applying a strategy that beats your brains out with regularity.”

“Sometimes when people are under stress, they hate to think, and it’s the time when they most need to think.”

“The world has never truly had to develop an ethic of interdependence rooted in our common humanity. And if we do it, the 21st century will be the most interesting, exciting, peaceful era in history.”

“When I took office, only high energy physicists had ever heard of what is called the Worldwide Web…. Now even my cat has its own page.”

“You can put wings on a pig, but you don’t make it an eagle.”

“Sometimes I feel like the fire hydrant looking at a pack of dogs. For six years I had declined to tell those kinds of jokes, because I have been told it is not presidential. But I feel kind of outdoorsy today.”

“People around the world have always been more impressed by the power of our example than by the example of our power.”

“The price of doing the same old thing is far higher than the price of change.”

“Our paradigm now seems to be: Something terrible happened to us on September 11, and that gives us the right to interpret all future events in a way that everyone else in the world must agree with us. And if they don’t, they can go straight to hell.”

“Let me say this as clearly as I can: No matter how sharp a grievance or how deep a hurt, there is no justification for killing innocents.”

“I may not have been the greatest president, but I’ve had the most fun eight years.”

“We cannot build our own future without helping others to build theirs.”

“Banning human cloning reflects our humanity. It is the right thing to do. Creating a child through this new method calls into question our most fundamental beliefs. It has the potential to threaten the sacred family bonds at the very core of our ideals and our society. At its worst, it could lead to misguided and malevolent attempts to select certain traits, even to create certain kind of children — to make our children objects rather than cherished individuals.”

“Global poverty is a powder keg that could be ignited by our indifference.”

“I like the job. That’s what I’ll miss the most…I’m not sure anybody ever liked this as much as I’ve liked it.”
