The greatest glory in living according to Nelson Mandela


Bad things may happen to us, we may fail a thousand times... but it is glorious to see that we do not let ourselves be defeated by it, and we respond by getting back up again.

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


It's true, absolutely true...
sometimes we fall more
than we should,
and certainly much more
than we would like to...

But after the fall
there is an opportunity.

We can decide to get up,
we can stand up again,
we can try again,
we can refuse to give up,
we can put effort into what we do,
we can learn from our experiences,
apply the lessons we have learnt...

Yes, it is undoubtedly a glorious thing
to see that we are capable
of getting up again,
of not remaining fallen on the ground,
of not dragging ourselves through the mud,
and of moving forward in life
in spite of so many falls.
