Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (July 18, 1918 – December 5, 2013)


"Strive constantly to serve the welfare of the world; by devotion to selfless work one attains the supreme goal of life. Do your work with the welfare of others always in mind. … The ignorant work for their own profit; the wise work for the welfare of the world, without thought for themselves. … Perform all work carefully, guided by compassion."


The Bhagavad Gita
