A freedom fighter enhanced to be iconic leader of all times. He introduced the moral authority over those he served and in turn earned the utmost respect from the world! Baljinder Bal Boora December 6, at pm Recently, I read his biography and became aware what this true leader had to contend with at the hands of brutal and racist regime in South Africa to get equal rights for the blacks and other visible minorities. Mandela suffered not on personally but his wife Winnie and their children suffered as well. He spent 27 years of his prime life time in a wet cell on the isle land prison.
The legacy this brave leader left for the world will guide the future generations like a light house when looking for guidance in any troubled society. He showed courage in the brutal fight against the white minority regime and brought them to their knees with the help of support for his mission from the international community.
Hi name will shine for ever and ever on this planet as a true leader of mankind! Edgar M December 6, at pm Fearless warrior of justice and equality. Rest in peace Nelson…!

Now we have your memories and you are part of the history now, thank you so much for make the world a better place. Dave Green December 6, at pm What amazed me about Nelson Mandela was that a man who had been wrongly imprisoned for decades could show such lack of anger.
To have suffered in the way he did, and to then show such forgiveness and compassion towards his oppressors was the mark of a truly wonderful human being. The whole world will miss him. Chukwuma Okonkwo December 6, at pm Nelson Mandela had a spirit akin to an in-combustible coal; he was an indestructible mold of his kind.
Mandela dared history; he transformed human race into a symbol that is held precious by everyone today. There can never be any better way to describe Madiba. For me, describing him as the greatest man of my time is a mere scratch on the surface of his personality. He has left imprints of his shades on the sand of posterity.
His model of leadership- leading from behind- leaves an inexpungible stamp in the history of mankind. Posterity will always know Madiba crossed this path. I have only met Madiba in books and legends. Of all the people I have met through books and legends Madiba stands out like a beacon in the stormy azure sea. His strongly desirous and autobiographical work, Long Walk to Freedom, written by him and published in by Little Brown and Co. He never failed to extend his heartfelt wishes to the entire humanity in respective of race, religion, and sexual orientation. You do not need to be around him before you witness his endearing aura.
Madiba was a cynosure he is still and will always be ; his endearing aura is comparable to none. He was the old archetype of probity, universal morality, sacrifice, humility, social justice, and struggle: he played to the hilt. He will continue to be my favorite teacher and leader!! Paz en su tumba. Michael Emmanuel December 6, at pm He was an extra-ordinary man with an ordinary touch,the world is very poor in his absence ,He was a man of the principles,a life well live dedicated to the cause of humanity as an African i yearn for the day we will have another Mandela but the truth is we will never ever have one ,as there is no one like him and the best we can do to honour him is to live like he did and hold strongly his values of compassion,love and forgiveness.
Mandela is the world icon and i will greatly miss him,as a foreign national residing and working in South Africa i owe all the successes that i have here to Nelson Mandela for without him South Africa would not have been kinder to allow me and my folks to reside here when we had problems in Zimbabwe,it is through his compassion that the spirit of ubuntu prevailed and we were welcomed. From a small white girl in America…you saved my life by saving those of so many. Bernadette Derry December 6, at pm Such a wonderful man.
We can and should learn his example of forgiveness and kindness. There will never be in my lifetime another person like him. God Bless you Mr Mandela. Gracias por luchar por la libertad e igualdad.

A great man who will be remembered and honoured for all time. Helen Lawrance December 7, at am Nelson Mandela you were one of my biggest heroes when I was a child, and you still are.
I remember hearing of your struggles in the news and from my parents, and then I went to study more about it at Birmingham University where I did African Studies. I remember these studies turned my brain inside out and a great truth was revealed to me. I discovered what colonialism really meant, what its legacy was.
I learnt more about how white people were able to view black people as savages. You were a mighty beacon of hope. You worked tirelessly and have showed no bitterness. You did not get tempted by corruption. Thank you forever for what you have done on this Earth. I am very sad to hear of your passing and wish you an eternal, peaceful rest. With love!

Nelson Mandela has been my personal hero and I have applied his teachings to my life. I am truly sad that we no longer have him with us but it was time for him to join the rest of the angels in heaven. We, South Africans of all colour are his rainbow nation, we have to continue to walk in his footsteps and work together as a nation. We have to forget the past and become one team, working to better all equally and fairly. We are all unique, have different skin colour and different cultures but we all want peace, respect, love and democracy.
We have to live by what he has taught us, change starts with Forgiveness. Lets us forget and start today now for that is what he wanted. We are his rainbow nation, South Africa and the World. I will cherise him always. Willem Tahon December 7, at am As the world mourns the loss of a giant leader my heart goes out to the people of South Africa.

He cherished and lived his life for the ideals of democracy, where people can enjoy equity of opportunity so that they could live harmoniously in unity. He was prepared to die for this cause. Those who praise him, and those who value his life experiences need to learn from those living experiences and continue to follow through his ideals for the betterment of the global humanity.

It does not follows itself, a UN professional staff was deprived from human right, staff right.

Rizkia Anjani December 7, at am I was born just in the end of 20th century. When Mr. Mandela was inaugurated to be the first democratic-elected president of South Africa, I was 3 years old.
As a very young child, I knew nothing about Mr. Mandela until my father told me about who he actually is. We cannot choose where we want to be born in, yet the race we prefer to belong to, OR whether we should have been born as Black, White or other existing colors in human race. Should race impede our capacity and capability? Should skin colors determine our opportunity in having better future and more importantly contributing for the goodness of human race? I painstakingly answer: NO.
And I guess Mr. Mandela will think the same way. We may be have lost Mr. Mandela, but we cannot give up preserving his spirit in terms of freedom and equality :. Nelson Mandela, Merci. You are always with us. Suzanne "Zac" Faelnar December 7, at am The most brilliant of stars that shines in the darkest of nights; The most unshakable and immovable of mountains that remains standing tall; The most powerful beacon of light that brings hope to a burdened people; The most profound and inspirational of minds that brings humility to humankind; The heart that beats as one with a nation; The soul that dives so deep for their sake; The spirit that sours so freely among a troubled and shackled people of the world.
Rise higher than the heavens! Smile warmer than the sun! May our tears of love and gratitude reach you in your rightful place of eternal rest and peace. Theresa December 7, at am Your inspiration will last forever! Thanks to you I believe in humankind! Rest in Peace Mr Mandela!

Knut Ostby December 7, at pm A great statesman has left us. He showed us how greatness can emerge from personal ideals and from believing in what is right. He showed us how true greatness can prevail against all odds and against pettiness on all sides. The world is poorer now that Nelson Mandela is no longer with us. But we should try our best to live on in his spirit. We can not be Nelson Mandela, but we can all contribute something. Maria Howard December 7, at pm My father taught me that all people are equal regardless of colour, race or creed so I rejoiced when arpatheid ended but feared a bloodbath.
Nelson Mandela had to live within that dreadful regime and was imprisoned by it yet preached peace and reconciliation. Present day South Africa is a tribute to his beliefs and leadership. Sincere condolences to all who mourn him. Farewell, Mr Mandela, rest in peace. Maria, Thuir, France. You where the Worlds peacebringer. Thuku Samuel Muthee December 7, at pm You were my hero. You still remain so in death.
I wanted to name my second son Nelson, the first is called Dedan, after Dedan Kimathi, the hero of Kenya. But we got a beautiful girl named Catherine. Her elder sister , Theresa, still asks for Nelson Mandela. Not possible because my wife already has 3 ceasarians. I wish i could. To me, you are in the class of the following: the many unsung heroes of in our villages; Bapu Mahatma Gandhji; and Mother Theresa of Calcuta.
You always lit my fire for freedom, rights, justice and equality for all. You remain a great being…. You are a father to me forever. Now another light has shone for you. Isnt it great and blight? You are free. Freedom came. Such a great soul. Its the way for us all. But we wish you had stayed here a little more. The history of humanity will never be complete without ypu. Thats how great you are! I accept you have exited. You deserved it after the long walk. But i have put your image facing a light with your signature smile on the screen of my phone.
For 1yr from now, i will see you everyday! Then i will let go. Its my only way of honoring you my hero.. Fare thee well my father. We will all miss you. Thanks for all you did for us. God grant you peace unknown. Bye till we meet. Leanne Tobias December 7, at pm Nelson Mandela is a hero for the ages. Mandela exemplifies the best of transformative leadership in advancing the cause of human dignity and freedom.
The world has lost a great statesman. I extend my deepest condolences to Mr. Ethel Maringa December 7, at pm A very sad moment, You will be greatly missed.

May God keep you always in his loving care and comfort your family and The world as we mourn and celebrate a life lived in service to God and mankind. Love the Campbell Family, Canada. Just me December 7, at pm A man I consider to be one of the greatest from the present along with all from history has passed.
This however is not a tragic loss, if one considers that he will certainly be welcomed into the kingdom of heaven by the Lord. I salute both the man and the legacy he leaves behind. Vila i frid Madiba Amandla! He showed me that no matter what life throws at you or how people treat you, it is only you who determines whether you are bitter and resentful or live your life with dignity and grace. Never forgetting your ideals, honour and integrity but also forgiving others. It is almost inhuman exactly how well he managed to do that after suffering such hatred and racism.
Asimov enjoyed the writings of J. I think science fiction isn't really science fiction if it lacks science. And I think the better and truer the science, the better and truer the science fiction". This stated that Asimov was required to insist that Clarke was the best science fiction writer in the world reserving second-best for himself , while Clarke was required to insist that Asimov was the best science writer in the world reserving second-best for himself.
Asimov became a fan of mystery stories at the same time as science fiction. He preferred to read the former to latter because "I read every [science fiction] story keenly aware that it might be worse than mine, in which case I had no patience with it, or that it might be better, in which case I felt miserable". In my opinion, her mysteries are the best ever written, far better than the Sherlock Holmes stories, and Hercule Poirot is the best detective fiction has seen.
Why should I not use as my model what I consider the best? Asimov also enjoyed humorous stories, particularly those of P. In non-fiction writing, Asimov particularly admired the writing style of Martin Gardner , and tried to emulate it in his own science books. On meeting Gardner for the first time in , Asimov told him this, to which Gardner answered that he had based his own style on Asimov's.
Paul Krugman , holder of a Nobel Prize in Economics , has stated Asimov's concept of psychohistory inspired him to become an economist.

John Jenkins, who has reviewed the vast majority of Asimov's written output, once observed, "It has been pointed out that most science fiction writers since the s have been affected by Asimov, either modeling their style on his or deliberately avoiding anything like his style. Christian , "understood better than Isaac Asimov what synoptic thinking is all about. His almost books—which he wrote as a specialist, a knowledgeable authority, or just an excited layman—range over almost all conceivable subjects: the sciences, history, literature, religion, and of course, science fiction.
Through a series of developments of absorbing lack of interest as far as these pages are concerned , I found myself doing research on a biochemical topic. In that area of study I obtained my Ph. But even that was too wide a subject. From books to nonfiction, to science, to chemistry, to biochemistry—and not yet enough. The orchard had to be narrowed down further.
To do research, I had to find myself a niche within biochemistry, so I began work on nucleic acids And at about that point, I rebelled! I could not stand the claustrophobia that clamped down upon me. I looked with horror, backward and forward across the years, at a horizon that was narrowing down and narrowing down to so petty a portion of the orchard. What I wanted was all the orchard, or as much of it as I could cover in a lifetime of running I have never been sorry for my stubborn advance toward generalization. To be sure, I can't wander in detail through all the orchard, any more than anyone else can, no matter how stupidly determined I may be to do so.
Life is far too short and the mind is far too limited. But I can float over the orchard as in a balloon. Depending on the counting convention used,  and including all titles, charts, and edited collections, there may be currently over books in Asimov's bibliography— as well as his individual short stories, individual essays, and criticism.

In Memory Yet Green. The date of my birth, as I celebrate it, was January 2, It could not have been later than that. It might, however, have been earlier. Allowing for the uncertainties of the times, of the lack of records , of the Jewish and Julian calendars , it might have been as early as October 4, There is, however, no way of finding out.
My parents were always uncertain and it really doesn't matter. I celebrate January 2, , so let it be. In his comments on the poem, Asimov wrote that originally it was "Why, stars above, it's Asimov", and when someone suggested to use "mazel tov" instead, Asimov accepted this as a significant improvement. There are three very simple English words: 'Has,' 'him' and 'of. Now leave out the two h's and say it again and you have Asimov. Yours, Isaac Asimov.
My estimate is that Isaac received about , letters in his professional career. And with the compulsiveness that has to be a character trait of a writer of almost books, he answered 90 percent of them. He answered more than half with postcards and didn't make carbons of them. But with the , letters he received, there are carbons of about 45, that he wrote. The introduction to the full dissertation was reprinted in his book Opus , pages — Nightfall, and other stories. I wrote a novel in which pictured a world in which everyone lived in underground cities, comfortably enclosed away from the open air.
People would say, "How could you imagine such a nightmarish situation? For months and months I lived and thought Shakespeare, and I don't see how there can be any greater pleasure in the world—any pleasure, that is, that one can indulge in for as much as ten hours without pause, day after day indefinitely.
New York: Doubleday: When Israel was founded in and all my Jewish friends were jubilant, I was the skeleton at the feast. I said, "We are building ourselves a ghetto. We will be surrounded by tens of millions of Muslims who will never forgive, never forget and never go away. But don't Jews deserve a homeland? Actually, I feel that no human group deserves a "homeland" in the usual sense of the word. I am not a Zionist, then, because I don't believe in nations, and Zionism merely sets up one more nation to trouble the world. June 27, Isaac Asimov Home Page.
