21 Inspirational Nelson Mandela Quotes That Prove Anything Is Possible

On February 11, 1990, Nelson Mandela was released from prison after 27 years.

Following a 1960 massacre of non-violent black demonstrators, Mandela — who had previously advocated for nonviolent resistance in dismantling South Africa’s institutionalized white supremacy — resorted to violence in order to effect change, by helping to organize a paramilitary branch of the African National Congress (ANC). Four years later, Mandela, along with several other ANC peers, were charged with sabotage and sentenced to life in prison.

In 1990, south African President F.W. de Klerk called for the release of Mandela. Upon his release, Mandela would soon go on to become President of South Africa himself, inspiring countless individuals in his advocacy for peace and social justice, even after his December 2013 death.

With that in mind, here are some of the most inspirational Nelson Mandela quotes to help celebrate his legacy:

This tiny white turtle may not be large, so take a close look, because there likely won’t be another picture of a newborn albino sea turtle for quite a while.

Five volunteers from the Coolum and North Shore Coast Care group in Australia first saw the albino anomaly while gathering research data on turtle nests on Castaways Beach in Queensland on Sunday. The other 122 baby turtles in the nest had hatched and made their sprint to the sea on Friday, but there was one albino straggler left, laying on his back under a piece of protective mesh that was keeping the turtle nest safe from foxes. They appropriately dubbed the turtle “Alby.”

World’s Largest Solar Plant Goes Live, Could Revolutionize Fight Against Climate Change

If there is anywhere in the world that solar power technology could deliver unprecedented amounts of renewable energy, it’s sub-Saharan Africa. The Sahara Desert sees an average of less than 2.5 centimeters of rain annually, has an average temperature of 86°F, and reaches 122°F in the warmest months.
