Nelson Mandela as seen through social media

Today I have seen so many shares of photographs of Nelson Mandela with inspirational captions.

I'm trying to resist the temptation to do a survey of the captions and find out how many of them should really be attributed to other people (my guess?  definitely some, probably many, and just possibly, lots).

I think all the *photos* are really Mandela - although now I say that, the temptation to see if I can slip a photo of some other bloke in, with a quote stolen from Pam Ayres is growing almost unbearable...

I guess this is what it really means to become a legend.
