It always seems impossible until its done.

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
-Nelson Mandela
Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement.
-Nelson Mandela
Our human compassion binds us the one to the other – not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.
-Nelson Mandela
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.
-Nelson Mandela
And one of our favorites:
Nelson_Mandela-freedom sharp
