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

Other quotes by Nelson Mandela

Nonviolence is a good policy when the conditions permit.

In my country we go to prison first and then become President.

Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement.

Money won't create success, the freedom to make it will.

You know, you can only lead them from behind.
