“By maturity, he meant that he learned to control those more youthful impulses, not that he was no longer stung or hurt or angry. It is not that you always know what to do or how to do it, it is that you are able to tamp down the emotions and anxieties that get in the way of seeing the world as it is. You can see through them, and that will see you through.”
Richard Stengel, Mandela's Way: Lessons on Life, Love, and Courage

“And that is how he would describe courage: pretending to be brave. Fearlessness is stupidity. Courage is not letting the fear defeat you.”
Richard Stengel, Mandela's Way: Lessons on Life, Love, and Courage

“Conditions plus principles determine strategy.”
