Sample Book Insights:
#1 Courage is an everyday activity, and we can display it in ways large and small. It is the way we choose to be in situations that are difficult.
#2 Mandela was always afraid, but he was also always courageous. He was afraid during the Rivonia Trial, when he was sentenced to life in prison, and he was afraid when he was an underground fugitive known in the press as the Black Pimpernel.
#3 Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the ability to overcome it. In the 1950s, Mandela once drove down to the Free State to see Dr. James Moroka, the president of the African National Congress. His car grazed a white boy on a bicycle, and the first thing Mandela did was to hide a copy of New Age, a banned newspaper, in case the police came after him.
#4 Courage was demonstrated one day at a time in prison. It was not just about standing up to a guard when you had to, but simply walking tall, maintaining your daily dignity, and maintaining your sense of optimism and hope.
