wouldn’t you rather be in a place of discomfort

Wouldn’t you rather not have help

Wouldn’t you rather be in it for the pain

Wouldn’t you rather rise alone, a little more insane?

// Quick thought after hearing an audio-book about Mandela’s life, his historic court-room speech and post-imprisonment philosophies.

He pushed himself into a corner. Had mostly just himself for company in his beliefs and actions. That takes courage, grit and a certain belief, with a lot of insanity; what an inspiration.
