“You Can Change the World”
“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” (Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist)
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” (T. S. Eliot)
“A Legacy of Mandela –
Others can better write about Nelson Mandela’s impact on the world stage, on how he stood up for the dignity of all people and on how he changed our world.
For those that seek to make a change in the world, whether global or local, one lesson of his life is this:
You can make a difference.
You can stand up to insurmountable forces.
You can put up with far more than you think you can.
Your lever is far longer than you imagine it is, if you choose to use it.
If you don’t require the journey to be easy or comfortable or safe, you can change the world.” (Seth Godin, Seth’s Blog, 12.5.13)
“There is no remedy for death — or birth — except to hug the spaces in between. Live loud. Live wide. Live tall.” (Jim Crace)
“Everything is possible. The impossible just takes longer.” (Dan Brown, Digital Fortress)
“You are good. But it is not enough just to be good. You must be good for something. You must contribute good to the world. The world must be a better place for your presence. And the good that is in you must be spread to others. In this world so filled with problems, so constantly threatened by dark and evil challenges, you can and must rise above mediocrity, above indifference. You can become involved and speak with a strong voice for that which is right.” (Gordon B. Hinckley)
“Be the one who nurtures and builds. Be the one who has an understanding and a forgiving heart one who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them.” (Marvin J. Ashton)
Rest in Peace, Nelson Mandela.
