Here are some of the celebrities who shared their special moments with the late Mr Mandela:
Rest In Power Tata! #happymandeladay #67minutes We must all strive to be inspired by a deep-seated love of our country, without regard to race, color, gender or station in life. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. Only free men can negotiate. Prisoners cannot enter into contracts. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite You will achieve more in this world through acts of mercy than you will through acts of retribution. The habit of attending to small things and of appreciating small courtesies is one of the important marks of a good person 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. A winner is a dreamer who never gives up
