We fight not for glory nor for wealth nor honours; but only and alone we fight for freedom, which no good man surrenders but with his life.
Reviewing #NelsonMandela’s autobiography! In fact, everyone should do the same. Mandela is not just an icon to be remembered today but that of an eternal man of principles thought out the journey of one. ‘ #LongWalktoFreedom ‘ is a deeply inspiring real life story of an unbelievably strong man who remained a freedom fighter in every aspect of his life, whether he was free or jailed, whether he was trying to dismantle apartheid or simply trying to get Robben Island’s prisoners access to reading materials. More than that, though, the book is a wonderful model for anyone fighting for a just cause against overwhelming odds. Mandela is a master at balancing long and short-term goals, making smart compromises and not letting emotion supersede tactics. Perhaps the most moving part of the whole book is Mandela’s willingness, in the end, to partner — in the service of the greater good — with the same people who stole almost everything of personal meaning from his life.For these reasons, Mandela’s book and life has lessons far beyond the anti-apartheid movement.
