TIME is releasing a special issue on Nelson Mandela commemorating his life in words and pictures, including tributes by Richard Stengel, Bono and Morgan Freeman. The cover features a 1990 photo of Mandela taken by Hans Gedda in Sweden during Mandela’s first trip abroad after his release from Robben Island one month before. This is the sixth time that Mandela has appeared on the cover of TIME. This issue will be on newsstands Monday alongside with this week’s regular issue featuring Carl Icahn and next week’s Person of the Year issue to be published on Wednesday, Dec. 11.

With every passing day...your dirty conspiracies against our beloved Egypt and our loyal army is clearly shown..General El SiSi...is a typical example of patriotism..faithfulness..loyality...for his country ..and his people ..whether you like or not whether you mention it or not....will make No difference...You completely ignored those millions who said a very big No...for the terroristic brother hood gang..in june 30..insisting on saying that it's military coup...You are completely wrong...It's the Egyptian's will..and they had a complete right to Do it...None of any other country business..Stop saying a word about deomcracies and the rights of people to decide their destinies..They are fake principles ..used as a mean justfication to destroy countries..of your enemies ..what happened in Iraq and Syria..Lybia ...is a clear evidence for my words..May our god save Egypt and the Egyptian army...Amen..

All of us are truly indebted to this man of greatness - a peaceful liberator who has changed the course of history. He has became the most prized national figure, anti-apartheid icon world-wide. To celebrate his extraordinary life, I'd like to share a collection of some of his most uplifting, profound words. RIP! http://paulsohn.org/the-top-10-nelson-mandela-quotes-of-all-time/
