Nelson Mandela & Mother Teresa
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (18 July 1918 — 5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the first black South African to hold the office, and the first elected in a fully representative, multiracial election. Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu (26 August 1910 - 5 September 1997), more commonly known as Mother Teresa, was a Roman Catholic nun of Albanian ethnicity and Indian citizenship, who founded the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India, in 1950. For over 45 years, she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying, while guiding the Missionaries of Charity's expansion, first throughout India and then in other countries. /5

Did you know: George Washington, Beyonce, Edgar Allen Poe, Vera Wang, Idris Elba, Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa all were people?
Took the personality test and I got Diplomat/Advocate like Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Nicole Kidman, Jimmy Carter..
Part of what made people like Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi legendary were the words they spoke: https:…
Carter...Nelson Mandela, Queen Elizabeth II, Mother Teresa...true icons in a mad world.
Jesus, Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, etc, never begged people to believe their message. | LIAM 80 | Listen:
Look at people who discovered a cause that they gave their lives over to, people such as Benjamin Franklin, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Albert Einstein and Nelson Mandela. They connected with some kind of a crusade that they decided their lives would represent. This engaged their hearts. This made them emotionally charged up about what they were doing. And once we can develop some emotional engagement around a pursuit, rather than simply an intellectual engagement, the excitement flows and the energy explodes.
Good Morning Lovely SOULS!!! Here's A Wonderful & Fun Personality Test! My Personality Type is an "INFJ." Some Famous INFJs: Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela & Mother Teresa. 😇 "Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness." -Martin Luther King
Apparently I have the same personality type as Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa... Hmm
My peace...to the relevant “I carry history unafraid of confrontation, passionately bold in sympathy, to cease to renounce history in the future.” ”I carry with me the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer, the vision of Albert Luthuli, the independence of Kwame Nkrumah, the nurture of Mother Teresa, the will of Nelson Mandela, the chivalry of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the consciousness of Steve Biko, the hope of Nkosi Johnson, the authenticity of Credo Mutwa, the pride of Usain Bolt and the mind of Njabulo Madlala.
That moment when you hear that someone says you act like Oprah Winfrey lol, yasss please compare me to an intelligent, female billionaire who inspires others, but no really I'm a positive person that is inspired by Oprah and many others like my grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, Mrs. Ella Moody, Mrs. Lori Connor, Coach Cathy Digby-Leon, SFC Noah King, SSG Rodney Lockhart, Jeremy Lovern (Civilian), Ms. Olive Hilliard, Dr. Nelle Bedner, Dr. Veronica Perkins, Mrs. Stone, an old parent of mine, Nelson Mandela, Dr. Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa and the list goes on...
Truly Inspirational: Two brothers, one goal: empower youth to change the world! Craig and Marc Kielburger: Social entrepreneurs, humanitarians, social activists, best-selling authors and renowned speakers Over two decades, Craig and Marc have visited dozens of countries, meeting people from all walks of life. They have been fortunate to learn from some of the greatest spiritual, political and social leaders of our time, including the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa. They have shared simple meals with children struggling in the slums of Calcutta, Brazil and Thailand, and have shared the stage with heads of state at United Nations conferences. They’ve also had the chance to speak with thousands of students, parents and educators who hold a common commitment to global change. Throughout their travels, Craig and Marc have witnessed not only the extremes of humanity’s wealth and poverty, privilege and exploitation, but also the power that every person has to create lasting change. As thought l ...
Don´t say you don´t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Louis Pasteur, Mother Teresa, Albert Einstein, Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba, Nelson Mandela, Agostinho Neto...
What stands out for me about great people like Nelson Mandela, Ghandi, Mother Teresa, and the Dalai Lama is no matter who they speak to, whether it's the president of a country or the homeless person on the corner, their role does not change! Imagine a world where everyone was that genuine!
The leaders that inspired me (not in order): It's ok if you don't read it..it was good therapy for me. Who inspires you?! Nelson Mandela- You can change the world and your country from a jail cell. My Mother- Mother, group home leader, prayer warrior, USAA 24 yrs, etc. Was there before, during, and after my darkest days. Apostle Paul- Apostle, author, church planter, leader, sinner. The writer of most of the new testament. My Children- Pianists, artist, A students, creative hipsters. Showed me how to love and taught me that you can be successful as a child.

GREAT LEADERS, LEAVE LEGACIES! Folks, leadership is not about you being in position, having a title, being a manager, supervisor, president, or CEO. Leadership is what you do everyday that impacts the lives of ordinary people. It is about having those traits and competencies that enables you to lead. it is about empathy, listening, motivating, inspiring, and working as a team player. Great leaders leave legacy means, doing things that impact or change the world for the better: These late Transformational Leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Mr. Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Mother Teresa, John F. Kennedy, and many more, have changed the world. What are your legacies, as African Leaders?
Bharat Ratna Awards:= Rajendra Prasad, the former President of India on 2 January 1955 gave his order to establish an award. As per the order of the then President (till 1966), the award did not allowed any one to grant the posthumous awards. Further in January 1966, a provision was inserted for this. Till date, 12 posthumous awards have been given of which one includes Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Bose was given the award in 1992, which was withdrawn due to legal technicalities. The case of Bose is the only and last case recorded till date of withdrawal of the award. The Order of precedence of India is the protocol list (hierarchy of important positions) has placed Bharat Ratna awardees at the seventh position.

There is nothing quite like putting together a montage of great historical speeches, to inspire you to make a positive impact on the world. Over the past few days I’ve watched hours of footage from Carl Sagan, Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Harvey Milk, the Dalai Lama, John Lennon, Oprah, Princess Diana, Steve Jobs, Margaret Thatcher, Reagan, Mother Teresa, Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, Winston Churchill, Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, JFK, Harvey Milk, Gandhi, Daniel Inouye and many more. for Exceptional Speaking
Snowden Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize American National Security Agency contractor-turned-whistleblower Edward Snowden could join the ranks of Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Barack Obama, and numerous others as a Nobel Peace Prize laureate. He was nominated as a candidate by two Norwegian members of parliament who contend that Snowden's release of classified US documents will make the world a safer, more peaceful place—a controversial position to be sure. The winner of this year's prize will be announced in October.
Beautiful face will certainly wrinkle, beautiful heart will never wrinkle. In the stories of Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, beautiful heart even shine forever
Today's Daily Word is dedicated to building your legacy! A legacy is something that is received from someone who has died! The dictionary says it can be property or money but we all know that in most cases those leave very little value! When we speak of legacy, we speak of what has been done in a lifetime that lives on past that person's death! When you think of Martin Luther King and his dream of equality and the mark he left in the world, or when you think of Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, and as of recent, Nelson Mandela... These are all souls who were selfless and lived a life of service and vowed to leave the world better than how they found it! When you think about your life. What legacy will you leave? When it is all said and done, how will you be remembered? Are you going to continue to only think about yourself and live a life that will be over after the obituary? Or are you going to maximize your God-given talents to leave a mark in the world that will never be forgotten? I don't care ...
The Guardian The Mandela coverage and the banality of goodness To discuss Mandela alongside Mother Teresa, Gandhi and Jesus is Barking Mad. I bet he's laughing his head off right now o Simon Jenkins o The Guardian, Tuesday 10 December 2013 Enough is enough. The publicity for the death and funeral of Nelson Mandela has become absurd. Mandela was an African political leader with qualities that were apt at a crucial juncture in his nation's affairs. That was all and that was enough. Yet his reputation has fallen among thieves and cynics. Hijacked by politicians and celebrities from Barack Obama to Naomi Campbell and Sepp Blatter, he has had to be deified so as to dust others with his glory. In the process he has become dehumanised. We hear much of the banality of evil. Sometimes we should note the banality of goodness. Part of this is due to the media's crude mechanics. Millions of dollars have been lavished on preparing for Mandela's death. Staff have been deployed, hotels booked, huts rented in Transke ...
I hope everyone had a great and Merry Christmas with their families! At the end of this day take a moment and reflect. I am grateful that someone found it necessary to set aside a day to recognize an act of unconditional love. God so loved that He gave… Emmanuel, God with us… Since that day throughout time individuals have been inspired by that act and gave of themselves, even good ole’ St. Nick caught the spirit of giving. Some have given a little and some have given their all but in most instances it was unselfish giving. Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, President Lincoln, Dr. King, Robert Deckard, Matthew Rodriguez all names, some recognizable some not but all gave. Whether it is giving your all, giving someone a hand up or giving someone your time; give unselfishly this season as the original reason for this season did when He chose to come among us for our sake. We pray for all of those that are not with their families as they give on our streets to protect and serve and give abroad to do ...
Gandhi , Bhagath Singh , Nelson Mandela, Bill Gates , Albert Einstein ,Thomas Edison , Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa , Sachin Tendulkar and so on were once a kid . what made those kids to be special one of world. who was with them ? what inspired them to do that ? It was nothing special with them . they just followed their & . Their , ,made them to be them . these words are seem you simple now because you are used to of reading and listening them. once you implement them in your life no body can stop you to come in above names.
Nelson Mandela alongside Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mother Teresa as exemplars of inspiration and moral virtue in world history.
Mandela and Fidel: What is not being said. ATILIO BORÓN THE death of Nelson Mandela has precipitated a torrent of interpretations on his life and work, all of which present him as a disciple of pacifism and a kind of Mother Teresa of South Africa. This is an essentially incorrect, and premeditated, image, promoted to obscure the fact that after the Sharpeville massacre in 1960, the African National Congress (ANC) adopted a strategy of armed struggle and sabotage of enterprises and important economic projects, but without endangering human life. Mandela toured diverse African countries in search of economic and military aid to sustain this new tactic of struggle. He was detained in 1962 and, shortly afterward, sentenced to life imprisonment, 25 years of which he spent relegated to a maximum security prison, in a cell measuring 2x2 meters. Only as a result of formidable international pressure to attain his release, these conditions improved in the last two years of his detention. Thus, Mandela was not a "w ...
Great leaders such as Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. have left a lasting mark in the world because of the great accomplishments they have achieved and their names will forever go down in history. What talent and abilities has God gifted you with? How can you use them to impact your circle of influence? If we take on the motto, "Each One, Reach One" and make it our goal, then it becomes a ripple effect as each person pays it forward. Just one small change at a time can lead to a great change in the world.
Did America flag fly at half-mast for death of Margaret Thatcher? President Obama did not order the flag flown at half staff for the death of Margaret Thatcher, did not attend her funeral, and did not send any high level officials to represent the United States. Unlike the current death of Nelson Mandela. As for Mandela, my feelings are mixed. The media would like to have you believe he was comparable to Mother Teresa or Mahatma Gandhi. Mandela did not invent goodness, and to misrepresent where goodness comes from is the definition of evil as Augustine understood it when people place themselves over God. He was in jail due to his terrorism, and he was offered release repeatedly IF he publicly renounced terrorism, which he would not do. Understanding this, his speeches now sound very misleading to me, like he's trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the people and misdirect them. Sounds like the leader of our country today. The Iron Lady needs no representation in this discussion. It's easy to see which ...
Our solitary boast “THE ICONIC spiritual leaders of our time took decades of struggle and growth before they were formed into the universally recognized symbols that we know and love”, writes Ambassador Akbar Ahmed. He chairs Islamic Studies at American University in Washington DC. “Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela are universally recognized examples.” the jump:
J.M Coetzee's fine commentary on the death of Nelson Mandela: "Mandela's personal and political authority had its basis in his principled defence of armed resistance to apartheid and in the harsh punishment he suffered for that resistance. It was given further backbone by his aristocratic mien, which was not without a gracious common touch, and his old-fashioned education, which held before him Victorian ideals of personal integrity and devotion to public service…He was, and by the time of his death was universally held to be, a great man; he may well be the last of the great men, as the concept of greatness retires into the historical shadows." Having lived through an era during which we have been gifted with similar greatness in Martin Luther King, Steven Biko, Oscar Romero, and Mother Teresa, I asked myself what the defining characteristics of that greatness are and came up with the following list: Determination, courage, a capacity to transcend self-interest on behalf of a greater cause, a preparedn ...
In these days following Nelson Mandela's death many will try to rewrite his history or better yet reshape it. It's not the first time it has happened nor will it be the last when it comes to our leaders, our heroes, our icons. It has been done to Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, Marcus Garvey, Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Leonard Peltier, even Mother Teresa. They will label Mandela a communist & a terrorist because he refused to denounce controversial leaders like Fidel Castro or Moammar Gaddafi or once aligned with the armed wing of the ANC that advocated violence to overthrow the apartheid regime of South Africa. Any student of history knows that sometimes in order to force change like the legislated regulation of racial segregation (APARTHEID) in South Africa there's the possibility for violence. How is Mandela any different than those who fought in the American Civil War like John Jacob Astor, Ulysses S. Grant or William Sherman? Why isn't history labelling them terrorists? Nelson Mandela . ...
Overslept this morning and missed the gym; that's 15 years in a row. Interesing to see how the "celebrities" in that jungle malarkey were so adamant that the survey about how many men prefer women in make-up was incorrect; they of course all prefer women to look "natural". I feel this has nothing to do with them being politically correct, and trying to curry favour with the voting public, but is indicative of how men genuinely feel. Hmm, if you're a young woman out on the pull tonight, try going out without wearing any make up and see how you get on!!! I was astonished to read this week that Nigella Lawson dabbled in drugs; you never would have thought so from watching any of her cookery programmes! In other news, it transpires that Tom Daley is *** the sky is blue, the Pope is catholic, and England aren't going to win the World Cup. Oh, and Nelson Mandela died, but as Princess Diana didn't die in the same week he actually got some coverage, unlike Mother Teresa! You can get four large onions for 49p ...
Since i know Nelson Mandela is already in Heaven, i would like him to greet Mahatima Gandhi, Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King, Steve Biko, Walter Sisulu, Dr. Milton Obote, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, Karl Marx, Kwame Nkrumah, Muammar Gaddafi, Mother Teresa and Pope John Paul II. For us who have been left behind, the struggle for change continues.
Mandela... By governing "wisely and democratically", Mandela took a place in the pantheon of revolutionaries-turned-leaders, rather than dictators, writes Max Boot Within hours of Nelson Mandela's passing, commentary from around the world began pouring in - reflecting the greatness of the man and the impact his life had on the entire globe. In South Africa, the tributes were particularly poignant. The Mail & Guardian's Mark Gevisser writes that the man his fellow South Africans endearingly called "Madiba" was a father to his nation in a most personal sense: Mandela epitomised those instincts we most associate with childhood: trust, goodness, optimism; an ability to vanquish the night's demons with the knowledge that the sun will rise in the morning. But he also made us feel good, and warm, and safe, because he found a way to play an ideal father, beyond the confines of his biological family or even his national one. He was the father we would all have wanted if we could have designed one. He was wise with ...
We where the lucky ones cause we got to know and live in a world with Great leaders walking, people that made a difference in the world. Their legacies will be remembered for centuries to come. They paved paths with words and wisdom , their walk towards greatness was hard but they made it. Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Delai Lama, Che Guevara, Martin L. King, Mallkom X , Yasir Arafat and Nelson Mandela. I do not know if coming generations will have the same luck of witnessing such greatness. (Sometimes, it falls upon a generation to be great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom) Nelson Mandela
In a multitude of centuries, there have been few people who rose up to throw off the shakles of poverty, dictatorship and embraced the concept of true freedom for everyone. Clearly, Nelson Mandela is there along with Martin Luther King, Ghandi and Mother Teresa . Nelson Mandela literally saved an entire nation from total isolation by the world and built a concept that embraced ALL South Africans. Simply amazing ! About a decade ago, I was in Seattle, Washington for the annual meeting of The American Academy of Optometry--an organization I have been a part of for 35 years. I was waiting for a friend in a hotel lobby to have a relaxing dinner and conversation. Suddenly, a phalynx of security people asked us to stand back and just behind them was Nelson Mandela. I was barely 6-7 feet away from him and I was in a state of awe that a man I had admired and supported for 30 years was so close. He carried himself like a king with a beautiful steady gait and an aura of class, kindness and confidence. I wil ...
Mother Teresa, Princess Diana, John Lennon, and now Nelson Mandela. They lived their lives mostly for one purpose: “TO GIVE”
The effect that Nelson Mandela has had on the world I think it's something similar to your Mahatma Ghandi your Mother Teresa …
This is about Nelson Mandela's time in prison. ‘The 27 years were absolutely crucial in his spiritual development. The suffering was the crucible that removed considerable dross, giving him empathy for his opponents. It helped to ennoble him, imbuing him with magnanimity difficult to gain in other ways. It gave him an authority and credibility that otherwise would have been difficult to attain. No one could challenge his credentials. He had proved his commitment and selflessness through what he had undergone. He had the authority and attractiveness that accompany vicarious suffering on behalf of others – as with Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama.’ (Tutu)
thank you so much! its people like Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Mahatma Ghandi that changed the world I hope I can be a part!
Good morning my wonderful family. Waking up to a quite chilly morning in the 30's. We are safe in a warm home and I say Thank You Merciful Master. Yesterday we lost a living legend with the passing of Nelson Mandela. I feel so very grateful in my lifetime that I was alive to see and hear great men and women that were so influential and contributed so much to our world. Persons such as John F Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Golda Mier, Mahatma Ghandi to name a few persons most of us got still see (even if only on television) while they were still alive. These men and women dedicated their lives to helping right the wrongs that they saw as a hinderance to peace. They left behind legacies that will not soon be forgotten. Yesterday I spoke of knowing our calling and these wonderful heroes not only found theirs, but with great conviction used it to raise questions and challenge us still today to make the world we live in a better place. Each of these people at one point of their lives emphasized t ...
After 5000 years won't Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela & Mother Teresa and few others be depicted as "God" like Ram, Krishna & Jesus?!
Nelson Mandela was a great man. I read books and watched movies about the South African icon. I always thought of him as our people's Mother Teresa. However, he was quoted saying, "I am a sinner". Aren't we all. What I'm not understanding is I wake up and still reading my peers are in mourning for this man who lived shy of 100 years. My question, out of love, is why are you mourning? At 95 years of life, we should be celebrating and pray we see 95, in our lifetime. To live that many years, after spending 27 years imprisoned has me in awe. I cried when I read Paul Walker was dead. I mourned, because he was only 40 years old and we will never know the future of the father, actor, and humanitarian. Urban League of the Upstate is a service organization, here in Greenville. I benefited from their services, in not wanting to leave my mama and go to college. Through counseling, they convinced me to go. They are still providing service to our community. Join them in celebrating Nelson Mandela's life by joinin ...
I don't like David Cameron playing tribute to Nelson Mandela in the same way I would not like Myra Hindley playing tribute to Mother Teresa. Dun't feel right.
Yo know when you really sit back and think about our generation we have lost a ton of Iconic people, not just iconic singers and movie stars but Real Iconic people who in some way made the World a better place. Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul, President Ronald Region that's just some of the special one I can think of. With all these amazingly God chosen now gone who will be The Chosen One's for our CHILDRENS generation. It really scares me.
I stood less than 300 feet from Nelson Mandela (Madiba) in the lobby of the Wyndham Hotel in 1991. Madiba is statesman for South Africa, a Politician for the people, and a Citizen of the world. We will never in this life see another. He joins a short list of a world citizens who have done more to advance the cause of justice and human dignity without regard for personal recognition; Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela. Matiba walked into heaven doing the most earthly good. A great example for all humankind. Rest in peace Madiba!
We lost a truly amazing man yesterday. Very rarely do we have someone so incredible and so full of light and hope as Nelson Mandela. He now looks down on our planet with hope along side Martin Luther King Jr and Mother Teresa. I wish more people who understand his message to us all. =(
The light that shone across the dark continent has set.Nelson Mandela has joined rank with the darlings of the gods in eternal bliss,in the company of some of the greats of the 20th century:Prof.Einstein,Mohandas Gandhi,Mother Teresa,Willy Brandt,Pope John Paul.Let the world salute the Prince of Peace by knocking down the walls of religion,race,caste,language and nationality.More bridges and less walls,please.
Good morning family, praising The Lord everybody on Dec 6, 2013. A whole new day, a whole new way. An exceptional man has joined his predecessors, Dr King, Mother Teresa, Ghandi and all others that lived and died so that others could live better. "I am not a saint unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying", Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013. May he RIP.
I've had a list, since I was a teenager, of the famous people I'd like to know. The list included Mother Teresa, Rosa Parks, the Dali-Lama, Nelson Mandela, Indhira Gandhi, Coretta Scott King, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Mr. Rogers, and Jim Hensen. Now, my list is smaller, leaving only Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Cosby, Gloria Steinem, Bill & Melinda Gates, The Obamas, Wangari Maathai, Margaret Thatcher, and Malala Yousafzai. I'm sure I will add others to the list, and there are far more I would like to have known; those who passed away before I was even born. Among them, my great grandparents (Grampa Pierce & Grandpa Thacker). Those who shared my lifetime briefly, I wish I had gotten to know better before they died. My paternal grandmother & maternal grandparents...But I was a teenager & young adult, too self-absorbed to think that one day they'd be gone. It's amazing how History becomes much more important the older we get and the closer to our own mortality we grow. ~P.Frye
Paul Walker, apparently you where more important to society than Nelson Mandela! Such a shame the world we live in! And this is the legacy we leave our children, that a Kim Kardashian is more glorified than a Mother Teresa!
Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther, Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, Marcus Garvey, Patrice Lumumba,Tom Mboya, Wangari Maathai..etc...are all remembered not because of their AFFLUENCE, but because of their INFLUENCE. Ponder that.
We because am not myself we love speeches of our belovely different intellectual people...Julius Nyerere,Mohandas K.Gandhi,Barack Obama,Nelson Mandela,Albert Einstein,Stephen Hawking,Che Guevara,Dalai Lama,Mother Teresa,Oprah Winfrey,Steven Jobs,Martin Luther King Jr.They make our mind in hope.
Congratz to Sachin Tendulkar for being award the most presitigious award in India, the Bharat Ratna. Some other recipients of this award are: I Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, and some other famous indian peeps. Umesh Rajan Simba Nala Anand Uttam Rajan Arnav Rana
India's cricket star Sachin Tendulkar has been awarded the country's highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna. The award was announced hours after Tendulkar retired from international cricket following India's victory over the West Indies in a Test in Mumbai. Tendulkar is the first sportsman to win the award and - at 40 - the youngest. Previous recipients include India's first PM Jawaharlal Nehru, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela and Rajiv and Indira Gandhi. The award is made on a recommendation by the Prime Minister to the president. 'Rare phenomenon' Tendulkar bowed out of international cricket after his 200th Test match - 24 years and one day after his first. He played in 664 international matches, scoring 34,357 runs and making 100 centuries. He scored almost 2,500 more Test runs than the second-placed batsman, Ricky Ponting. Tendulkar was nominated to the upper house of parliament last year. Junior parliamentary affairs minister Rajiv Shukla, who is also vice-president of the Board of Control for Crick ...
Over the last one month, given the hullaballoo over Sachin Tendulkar's retirement, I am only reminded of the eternal value of the Wachowski brothers' Matrix! Red pill vs. blue pill...when I see even the so-called, self-professed "thinking" ones singing paeans to a sportsperson, who, by the way, had nothing in common with Mahatma Gandhi or Nelson Mandela or Mother Teresa or Martin Luther King Jr in terms of sacrifice... How more pathetic can the Indian citizen become?
Muslim World completly abandon this person so that he should learn a lesson that he cant make fun of our beloved Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) Request to all Muslims! Boycott Shahrukh Khan! Indian movie actor Shahrukh made alleged remarks about Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) that he is negative figure in the history.The word originally quoted fo anr interview with time & style magazine "When asked, "According to you who is the most impressive figure in history?" Khan allegedly said, "There are lots of them, some negative ones like Hitler, Napoleon, Winston Churchill and if I can call it history, then Prophet Mohammed and from recent time Nelson Mandela." "And there are nice ones like Gandhiji and Mother Teresa."
Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, etc are seen as role models. Who are some of your role models?
The 2 Ss (Self-Respect, Self- Love) And Acceptance Life's circumstances are not always what you might wish them to be. The pattern of life does not necessarily go as you plan. Beyond any understanding, you may at times be led in different directions that you never imagined, dreamed, or designed. Yet if you have never put any effort into choosing a path, or tried to carry out your dream, then perhaps you would have no direction at all. Rather than wondering about or questioning the direction your life has taken, accept the fact that there is a path before you. Not a single person existed or exists or will ever exist without having hurdles or any personal pains. Joyce Meyer, Oprah Winfrey, Helen Keller, Boll Gates, Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa all these great people had their own challenges to face and see now, how people look at them, the respect and honor paid to them, and the positive feelings they've left in so many lives is incredible. They did it, because they accepted life. They accepted ...
What do Colin Powell, Nelson Mandela, Michelle Obama, Indra Nooyi, Mother Teresa & Ivan Misner all have in common?
Dnt say u dnt have enough time. U have exactly de same number of hours per day dat were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci n Nelson Mandela, so u stil have time to reach wateva u wana reach.
My good people, life is not all about sex, money, fame, position but simply about our impacts after living the surface of the earth. Many had sex, money, fame, and the so called position but their names are no where to be found today. They are not even remembered in thier village talkless of their country. We should always think about living even after death. Alway keep in mind that 'a good name is far better than silver and gold'. Loads of kudos to Mother Teresa. After her death, two different countries fought on her corpse. Imagine, a dead body became a source of tourist attraction generating huge revenue for a nation. Martin Luther King Jr. known for leading the civil right movement in US, he said 'a day is coming when a nation will not be judge by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character, today the dream became a reality 'Obama'. Sir Isaac Newton died 286 years ago but his discoveries and inventions gave him life after death. A living African man Nelson Mandela, entire continent ...
People get confused with the difference in meaning of “following a person” and “following the thought of a person”. One should account the good substance and eliminate the bad to enhance one’s personality. In today’s world, a Mahatma alone cannot withstand, he should have in him a Che Guevara, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Subhash Chandra Bose, Nelson Mandela, Saddam Hussein and a Bin laden as well to some extent. The primary aspect is how well one survives rigid without getting dissolved in general. Rest is individuality if they are fine to be a part of mob rather leading them. Parallel to the fact, one does not become a “Hitler” if he follows the thought but real skill is when he remains as himself even after adapting the thoughts of the greatest dictator or of the great Mahatma.
My generation has a lot to thank for. We will be able to say to the future generations: I lived in the same time as Nelson Mandela, Steve Jobs, Mother Teresa, Yitzhak Rabin, Yasser Arafat, Kofi Annan, Tawakkol Karman, Aung San Suu Kyi, Barack Obama, Rigoberta Menchu.

Debate: Will these people be given a chance in heaven according to Islamic jurisprudence or like hazrat Abu Talib unless you accept Islam there's no way in? Mother Teresa, who dedicated all her life in providing for the poor and helpless. Nelson Mandela who spent years of his life behind bars for the sake of his people so the oppressed can get justice. And many thousands like them if not millions.
Praying that one day we will have more extra-ordinary great leaders like Nelson Mandela all over the World as Mandela is the best example of a leader that the whole World does not want to see leave this earth though inevitable at the ripe time. God bless Nelson Mandela forever. He has been one of the greatest inspirational and transformational leaders of all times. Spiritually, He is in the company of outstanding leaders like Pope John Paul and Mother Teresa though still with us. Angels are really surrounding him. My prayer is to have such wonderful experience when my own time arrives.

Some people seem to thrive on change. How do they do it? How do they manage change in a way that they not only survive, but also excel? They seem to make change work for them.Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., Margaret Thatcher, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and Mother Teresa —— with resolute courage and determination —— stood squarely in the center of change and controversy. These great leaders created their own opportunities to fight for what they believed in. This is the challenge and opportunity for you.
The ocean is made up of Individual drops of water that united together, Now tell me what the power of one can't do. Tell Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, John Newton, Mother Teresa,Abraham Lincoln, and countless other individuals who have made an impact in the lives they lived. We can't be the world that crushes our elderly, sick, and less fortunate. Human life is precious in any form... Lowborn men are but a breath, the highborn are but a lie; if weighed on a balance, they are nothing; together they are only a breath.. Psalm 62 vs 9.. The Lord God formed the man from the dust on the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2 vs 7.
Hasina, Santu should win Nobel Peace Prize: AG Wed, 09/03/2011 - 5:06am | by Fahud Khan The Attorney General, Mahbubey Alam, said on Tuesday that the Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, and Chittagong Hill Tracts Regional Council chairman Jyotirindra Bodhipriya Larma, should be given the Nobel Peace Prize for bringing peace to the hill districts by signing a peace treaty in 1997. ‘Why give so much importance to Yunus’ Nobel Prize, if anybody in Bangladesh deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, they are, I will say, Sheikh Hasina and Santu Larma, because they brought peace in the hill districts where no one could enter before without the help of the army,’ Mahbubey Alam told reporters. ‘Does Hasina and Larma’s not winning the Nobel Peace Prize belittle their contributions to bringing peace to Chittagong Hill Tracts?’ Mahbubey Alam asked. In this context he said that Nobel laureates Mother Teresa and form South African president Nelson Mandela had won the Peace Prize for what they did, not for the positions ...
"Even in practical and cynical cultures, it is surprising that those who we admire and even revere, are not the ultramasculine, aggressive and successful figures. Definitely not. Lets say that almost universally we hold in high regard people as Mahatma Gadhi, Martin Luther King Jr. , the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela - and why? Because they are good. We have internal antennas that capture goodness, because we were created for goodness, for love, for kindness, for compassion, for sharing. We are almost the ultimate paradox: we are finite, but set to infinity". Desmond Tutu (Nobel Peace Prize 1984). Quote from the book: A extraordinária liderança de Gandhi (Gandhi's outstanding leaderhip), by Pascal Alan Nazareth, editora cidade nova, SP, 2011, página 2. This passage was translated by me (from portuguese to English).

"If you don't like the word Salesperson then call yourself a persuader or a person of influence. Look at some people that were influencers: Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr., Winston Churchill, Mohandas Ghandi and Nelson Mandela. These were great people of influence and I guarantee you that they were great Salespeople! They "sold" entire nations or influenced the world with their words, their actions and their way of being. We are in great company as Professional Salespeople, Business Owners or Relationship-Marketers. We are the persuaders and influencers of the world. It's time for us to be proud of our profession!" - MJ Dukin

Greatness in our materialistic world is defined as fame, popularity, scholastic or economic achievement, and notoriety.

Last year during leadership training, we spent a lot of time understanding our personality types after we had tested them. I am INFJ (Counselor - Idealist). I always found it amazing and extraordinary that, for one, we are only 3% of the population and, for two, I share my personality type with some pretty rad people. Oprah Winfrey, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Eleanor Roosevelt, Carl Jung, Nelson Mandela, Plato, Martin Luther King Jr, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. :)
Hayden's got it wrong. Many non-Australians have been given the award - Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Clive Lloyd, Brian Lara.
Five of the great transformational leaders in history has Jesus Christ as their role models: George Washington, William Wilberforce, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi. "It is interesting because each chose to emulate Jesus’ behavior. It is ironic because, while Mother Teresa and Gandhi were not aligned on faith issues, they certainly were aligned on the quality of Jesus as a leader. No matter what one believes about who Jesus is, his influence and impact are undeniable and his legacy unsurpassed by any other leader." Davis H. Taylor (2007-08-23). THE IMPERFECT LEADER:A Story About Discovering the Not-So-Secret Secrets of Transformational Leadership (Kindle Locations 1198-1199). AuthorHouse. Kindle Edition.
The road to personal mastery Personal mastery is a shift in attitude that drives a shift in behaviour. From over-emphasising results to placing importance on the processes that set up the best chance of success; from defining one's contentment by results, to deriving contentment from the effort made in the pursuit of that result. From worrying about what others think about you, to knowing that what others think about you is none of your business. There are people who don't like Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi or Mother Teresa, so what makes you so special that everyone should like you? From focusing on the importance of looking good outwardly, to the importance of inner substance and strength of character. It is not about trying to be a good person but allowing the good person in you to emerge; Personal mastery is a shift from thinking you have the answers, to knowing you have much to learn. From balancing talking and telling with listening and asking. People who think they're "important" seldom ask questi ...

Mr. Nelson Mandela, the former President of South Africa is another example. He succeeded in his war against Apartheid in his nation, in spite of various failures. Last, but not the least, Mother Teresa got the Nobel Peace Prize for working relentlessly for the ill, poor and needy people. There are so many examples, which show that the word 'impossible' is not present in stalwarts' dictionary but what is present is 'faith'.
