“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us." ~ Nelson Mandela.

Invictus is an inspiring film that moves the human spirit. Although Nelson Mandela actually gave the rugby player an excerpt from Teddy Roosevelts "Man in the Arena" speech as opposed to the "Invictus" poem Hollywood portrayed, the sentiment was heartfelt none the less.

The strength of the human spirit has been immortalized in eloquent verse and captured on film to inspire for as long as we can remember.

The epic poem If by Rudyard Kipling has long held a magical spell over many of us. This classic gem serves to inspire us each to be better than we are. In the pantheon of historical art it's a masterpiece.

Select your own favorites - read and relive the words that stir your soul - revisit and watch the films that inspire you. Let's each renew our commitment to strive and be just a little better with immortal works like

If - and - Invictus
