N is for Nelson Mandela

This year, my theme is Quotes from A-Z.  Each day I will post a quote from a person whose name starts with each day's letter.  It will be short and sweet but hopefully it will bring a moment of inspiration, laughter, or meditation to your busy day.  I would love to hear your thoughts on the quotes in the comments or what other quote is your favorite by that day's person. On each Saturday, I will list all the quotes from the week and you can vote to tell me which was your favorite!

“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.” 













Quote found on Goodreads.


What are your fears that you are working toward conquering?

  1. That is so true with what he said. LOL with what fears I'm trying to conquer as I think I make headway on them, but then they come back and "bite" me and I wonder how much progress I've made on them. My biggest ones is worry and anxiety which is so silly in that I've never wanted and have been always incredibly blessed by God.

  2. We all have fears and the brave ones accomplish things despite those fears. (And if someone has no fear, he's probably just clueless.)

  3. Too often I let my fears stop me. I need to work harder on pushing past them.

  4. Much wisdom from that man. To fear is human. Rising above fear is also human. :)

  6. He has so many fantastic inspirational quotes. I have more fears than I can count but I'm working on standing up to them. I've managed to conquer a few LOL.

  7. This is one of my favorite quotes of all time! My other one is by Winston Churhill, "If you find yourself going through hell, keep going." I think they go well together. Quotes rule!
