The full text of US President Barack Obama's tribute to Nelson Mandela
At his trial in 1964, Nelson Mandela closed his statement from the dock saying, 'I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination.
'I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities.
'It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.'
And Nelson Mandela lived for that ideal, and he made it real. He achieved more than could be expected of any man.
Today, he has gone home.
And we have lost one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human being that any of us will share time with on this Earth. He no longer belongs to us - he belongs to the ages.
Through his fierce dignity and unbending will to sacrifice his own freedom for the freedom of others, Madiba transformed South Africa - and moved all of us.
His journey from a prisoner to a president embodied the promise that human beings - and countries - can change for the better.
His commitment to transfer power and reconcile with those who jailed him set an example that all humanity should aspire to, whether in the lives of nations or our own personal lives.
And the fact that he did it all with grace and good humour, and an ability to acknowledge his own imperfections, only makes the man that much more remarkable.
As he once said, 'I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.'
I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela's life.
My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid.
I studied his words and his writings. The day that he was released from prison gave me a sense of what human beings can do when they're guided by their hopes and not by their fears.
And like so many around the globe, I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that Nelson Mandela set. And so long as I live I will do what I can to learn from him.

Nakala kamili ya wasifu wa Rais wa Marekani Barack Obama kwa Nelson Mandela.
Katika kesi yake mwaka 1964, Nelson Mandela alimalizia taarifa yake kutoka kizimbani akisema, 'Nimepigana vita dhidi ya ukandamizaji wa weupe, na vita dhidi ya ukandamizaji wa weusi.
'Nimefurahia wazo la demokrasia huru ambayo watu wote wanaishi pamoja kwa amani na nafasi sawa za kimaisha.
'Ni wazo nataraji kuishi nalo hata kulifikia. Ikibidi ni wazo niko tayari kulifia.
Nelson Mandela aliishi kwa wazo hilo, na yeye alifanya hivyo hakika. Yeye aliyafikia mengi kuliko binadamu wa kawaida.
Na tumempoteza kiongozi mmoja mwenye ushawishi mkubwa , jasiri na wa maana sana, binadamu mzuri wa nafsi humu duniani. Hayuko pamoja nasi yeye yu peponi.
Kwa heshima yake kubwa na mapenzi yake, alijinyima uhuru wake mwenyewe kwa ajili ya uhuru wa watu wengine. Madiba alibadilisha Afrika Kusini na kutufurahisha sisi sote.
Safari yake kutoka mfungwa hadi kuwa rais ilishirikisha ahadi kwamba wanadamu na nchi zaweza badilika na kuwa bora zaidi.
Wajibu wake wa ugavi wa mamlaka na kujipatanisha na wale walimfunga kizuizini ni mfano bora kwa binadamu wote kutazamia katika maisha ya mataifa au maisha yetu binafsi.
Ni ukweli kwamba alifanya hayo wote kwa neema na ucheshi , uwezo wake wa kukiri udhaifu wake , ulimfanya wa kuonekana.
Wakati mmoja alisema, 'Mimi si mtakatifu, japo unafikiria kuhusu mtakatifu kama mwenye dhambi ambaye anaendelea kujaribu.
Mimi ni mmoja wa mamilioni wasiohesabika waliovutiwa na maisha ya Nelson Mandela.
Hatua yangu ya kwanza kabisa ya kisiasa, jambo la kwanza ambalo nilihusika nalo kisiasa ama kisheria ilikuwa ni maandamano dhidi ya ubaguzi wa rangi.
Mimi nilisoma maneno yake na maandishi yake. Siku hiyo alipoachiliwa kutoka gerezani ilinipa hisia ya kuwa binadamu wanaweza kuongozwa kwa matumaini bali si kwa hofu.
Na kama wengi ulimwenguni, siwezi kufikiria kikamilifu jinsi maisha yangu yangekuwa bila mwigo wa maisha ya Nelson Mandela. Na kwa muda nitakaoishi, nitafanya niwezavyo kujifunza kutoka kwake.
