When I learned of Nelson Mandela’s passing earlier this month, I spent the afternoon in tears.
Not tears of grief alone, but of love, admiration, awe, inspiration at the contribution this one man has made—both to the people of South Africa on their long path to freedom, and to the people of the entire world in our daily challenge to understand what it means to be a human being.
There is no passion to be found playing small—in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
― Nelson Mandela
Thank you, Madiba.
