Nelson Mandela…

I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death. — Nelson Mandela As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison. — Nelson Mandela Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies. — Nelson Mandela It always seems impossible until it’s done. — 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 I am not a saint, unless you consider a saint to be a sinner who keeps on trying. — Nelson Mandela
