In the Words of a Great Man

In your darkest moments take heed the words of a wise man. Here is the story of my journey with hyperemesis gravidarum as told by Nelson Mandela 1918-2013

There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.” - Nelson Mandela

There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.” - Nelson Mandela

Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement.” - Nelson Mandela

Our human compassion binds us the one to the other - not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.” - Nelson Mandela

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela
