Quotes from Today:
Man’s goodness is  flame that can be hidden, but never extinguished.
– Nelson Mandela

A good head and a good heart are a formidable combination.
– Nelson Mandela

I am fundamentally an optimist.  Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping ones head pointed towards the sun…ones feet moving forward.  There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested. But I would not and could not give myself up to despair.  That way lays defeat and death.
– Nelson Mandela
