Our history lesson was redirected yesterday to instead read about Mr. Nelson Mandela, his extraordinary life, his journey, his courage, his triumphs. I regret it occurred in relation to the announcement of his death, but sadly, life is not meant to be lived forever. All good things must end, as all giants of men must breathe their last breath.
We could learn much from this man I think.
And finally, something I read tonight:
“A man is not complete who believes his advancement depends on crushing others—
Or who worries about matters that cannot be altered—
Or who insists that a thing is impossible because he has not been able to do it.
That man is short of wisdom who cannot put aside his ordinary routine in order to refresh his mind with rest, change and meditation.
He needs much help who thinks he can compel others to do what seems right to him.” (Anonymous)
