"We all need hope, no matter what century we’re in, whatever state of life we’re in, whether we’re going through tragedy or not. It’s just hope that everything will be OK. And if it is tragedy and there’s disaster happening, hope that we can overcome it. I don’t think it’s solely for those who are outsiders and those who are alone – it’s for everyone.”
(Henry Cavill, on the theme of hope in Man of Steel)

Nelson Mandela, the revered statesman who emerged from prison after 27 years to lead South Africa out of decades of apartheid, passed away on December 5, 2013. Few men in the history of mankind have had more impact on a nation and inspired the world like the former president.
Shortly before he retreated from public life in 2011, Mandela participated in photographer Adrian Steirn’s 21 Icons project — a photographic and short-film series profiling the men and women who shaped modern South Africa.

"Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for the eternity." - Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela; Madiba; Tata. July 18, 1918 - December 5, 2013
