Ich habe gelernt, dass Mut nicht die Abwesenheit von Furcht ist, sondern der Triumph darüber. Der mutige Mann ist keiner, der keine Angst hat, sondern der, der die Furcht besiegt.

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 rest only for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not yet ended.
