65. MARIANNE WILLIAMSON: Our deepest fear

65. MARIANNE WILLIAMSON: Our deepest fear

Marianne Williamson (1952-) is a spiritual activist and best-selling author who has helped millions of people though her books, lectures, workshops and television appearances.

This quote is by far the most requested by you, the readers. Someone emails me this passage at least once a week – I won’t name each person because there are too many, so thank you to all of you who did and I hope I did it justice (I know it’s probably not what you had in mind).

This passage is from Williamson’s book, A Return to Love, and you can read the full quote here. It took me so long to adapt because I wasn’t comfortable including the references to God as I’m not religious. But after seeing this quote appropriated all over the internet in heavily edited versions, including two Hollywood movies (Coach Carter and Akeelah and the Bee), I decided I could edit the passage too. As long as I remained true to the overall message of the quote, then I think the author would be ok with it (I hope!).
(UPDATE: After thinking long and hard about this, I decided it was a poor decision on my behalf to edit the quote. I’ve subsequently amended the comic to feature the full text. Thanks for the feedback.)

– This quote is often misattributed to Nelson Mandela for some reason.
