Nelson Mandela

"... during all my years in prison, hope never left me ... I did not doubt that I would someday be a free man."

 "The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers fear."

Hi Judith .. he was a wise man - it's been interesting watching, listening and reading more stories on his life these past 10 days ..

Cheers Hilary

Every now and then, we humans are blessed by the presence of someone endowed with uncommon wisdom. As has been the case in the past, we often do not treat those individuals kindly. I am glad in Mandela's case that he was allowed to live his normal lifespan so we could come to our senses and appreciate his worth.
