An inspiration to be sure.

MANDELA

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)

No truer words were spoken.

 

 

About madranchwife

Mother, Mad Ranchwife(as in--at times-- crazy, nutso, loco, off-my-rocker insane), Veterinarian, Physical Therapist, "Liberal, pinko, gay-loving, Subaru-driving Socialist" (as I've been called), proud to be a totally tree-huggin', climate change believin', granola girl environmentalist, ObamaGirl, Pro-Choice (don't even get me started here...), and in my younger days a feminist vegetarian as a result of time spent at CU Boulder (this lasted approximately 14 months, until all the Jimmy Buffett I was listening to caused me to crave a cheeseburger). Now I just get pleasure out of swimming against the stream and ruffling a few feathers here in the wild west state of Wyoming!
