Nelson Mandela on courage

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.

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

~ Nelson Mandela (born 18 July 1918)

My Dear Srini,
Truly Inspiring! So often we come across face to face wth our own set of fears, insecurities and troubles and we refuse to look eye-to-eye at them...Forever looking at ways to escape!
These powerful words couldnt have come from a more wonderful human being..I so dearly admire Nelson Mandela.
Thank you so much for sharing this timely reminder Srini :)
God bless you always..Sending you lots of love and prayers :)

Dear Krishna,

Nelson Mandela is definitely an admirable human being. Words from such great beings are carry so much power because they truly believe in what they say, they practice what they preach.

And, yes, the best way to deal with a trouble is to face it boldly, trying to find an escape won't help. :)

Thanks for your comment.
God Bless you :)
