Being an anti-apartheid revolutionary leader of South Africa, Mandela was the country’s first black head of state who was repeatedly arrested and censored for his ideology.

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

4.     George Washington

During the Continental army’s win over the British, Washington had the chance to accept glory, but he didn’t let himself get lured in by his leadership victories. He went back to Mount Vernon (where he resided) to live peacefully in the free republic he had helped to create. Washington was a believer in liberty and wanted to end the plague of war forever. He said:

“I wish is to see the plague of mankind, war, banished from the Earth.”
