"A winner is a dreamer who never gives up."

“Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice all for the freedom of their people.” - Mandela

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” - Mandela

This is one of my favorite scenes from Invictus, when Mandela discusses the idea of true leadership with Francois, the captain of the South African rugby team. It's totally awesome.

"How do we inspire ourselves to greatness when nothing less will do?"

"We need inspiration, Francois, because in order to build our nation, we must all exceed our own expectations."

Rich, great movie!

I have a few favorite Nelson Mandela lines, too:
