Nelson Mandela RIP

Nelson Rolihlahla Dalibhunga Mandela

"It always seems impossible until it is done."
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
1918-2013

"It always seems impossible until it is done."

"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling but in rising every time we fall."

"There is no passion to be found in playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living."

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. 
The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."

"There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires."

When asked why he addressed the Queen of England by her first name, he's reputed to have said  "She called me Nelson."

When he was in prison he did hard labour by day. By night he wrote his autobiography.

He endured and endured and endured. And it never diminished his spirit.
