Change & Movement

Nelson Mandela has long been a worldwide inspirational icon. He is considered a hero for standing up against apartheid and serving 26 years in prison for fighting for what he believed was right.
Here is a small collection of his inspiring and moving quotes
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us: it’s in everyone. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Nelson Mandela
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.”
Nelson Mandela
“As I have said, the first thing is to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself… Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty, but humility.”
Nelson Mandela
“Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”
Nelson Mandela
You will achieve more in this world through acts of mercy than you will through acts of retribution.”
Nelson Mandela
