Notable Quote: Our Deepest Fear
Since the opening sentences concluded my previous post, I thought I'd give you whole passage. As noted, the attribution to Nelson Mandela is a bit of an urban legend. You can read the full discussion here.
However, I like the urban legend. There's something that feels so right, to think that Mandela would utter these words on his inauguration. The essence fits, and perhaps that's why the legend persists.
On a personal note, I happen to have an album from a reggae group called Tusa Pangaea. One song sets these words to music. It's the only reggae album I own, and priceless because of that one song.
