"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. It is through education, that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another." - Nelson Mandela, former president of South Africa, 1993 Nobel Peace Prize laureate (via bookmania)
