Hi, I think there is a typo on the jyutping from the nelson mandela quote;


如果同一個人用佢識嘅語言溝通,佢會聽入腦。如果用佢自己嘅語言同佢嚟溝通,佢就會聽入心。


jyu4 gwo2 tung4 jat1 go3 jan4 jung6 keoi5 sik1 ge3 jyu5 jin4 kau1 tung1, keoi5 wui5 teng1 jap6 nou2. jyu4 gwo2 jung6 keoi5 zi6 gei2 ge3 jyu5 jin4 tung4 keoi5 lei4 kau1 tung1, keoi5 zau6 wui5 teng1 jap6 sam1.


You missed out the "同佢" "tung4 keoi5", and also I think "溝通" should be romanized as "kau1 tung1"
