    Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate,
    but that we are powerful beyond measure.

    It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.
    We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
    gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

    Actually, who are you not to be?
    You are a child of God.

    Your playing small does not serve the world.
    There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
    so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

    We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
    It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

    And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
    other people permission to do the same.
    As we are liberated from our fear,
    our presence automatically liberates others.

    I have walked that long road to freedom.
    I have tried not to falter;
    I have made missteps along the way.
    But I have discovered the secret
    that, after climbing a great hill,
    one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
    I have taken a moment here to rest,
    to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me,
    to look back on the distance I have come.
    But I can only rest for a moment,
    for with freedom comes responsibilities,
    and I dare not linger,
    for my long walk is not ended.

    If you talk to a man
    in a language he understands,
    that goes to his head.
    If you talk to him
    in his own language,
    that goes to his heart.

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

    Let there be work,
    bread, water and salt
    for all.

    There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere,
    and many of us will have to pass
    through the valley of the shadow of death
    again and again
    before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.

    I am not a saint,
    unless you think of a saint
    as a sinner who keeps on trying.

    There is nothing like returning
    to a place that remains unchanged
    to find the ways
    in which you yourself have altered.

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

    Only free men can negotiate;
    prisoners cannot enter into contracts.
    Your freedom and mine
    cannot be separated.

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

    There can be no keener revelation
    of a society's soul
    than the way in which it treats its children.

    We must use time wisely
    and forever realize
    that the time is always ripe
    to do right.

    A good head and a good heart
    are always a formidable combination.

    If there are dreams
    about a beautiful South Africa,
    there are also roads
    that lead to their goal.
    Two of these roads
    could be named Goodness
    and Forgiveness.

    When the water starts boiling
    it is foolish to turn off the heat.

    To be free
    is not merely to cast off one's chains,
    but to live in a way
    that respects and enhances
    the freedom of others.
