african gems.

I missed last week’s wisdom post, so I’m doubling up this week with a pair each from renowned and respected African statesmen KWAME NKRUMAH (Ghana) and NELSON MANDELA (South Africa):

KWAME NKRUMAH

“Thought without practice is empty; and action without thought is blind.”

“Revolutions are brought about by men, by men who think as men of action and act as men of thought.”

NELSON MANDELA

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.”

“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.”
