There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”   —   Nelson Mandela

(Good luck finding a place that has remained unchanged these days!  But, I get what he’s talking about.  We like to think that we remain constant, when in reality we’re changing all the time.  It just usually happens in gradual increments, so it goes unnoticed.  It just occurred to me that we’ve never had a Nelson Rockefeller quote!  He was certainly a big shot in his day, from a very famous family.  Even if you’re not a fan of the guy, I’m sure he had some worthy quotes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”   —   Nelson Mandela

(I think he kind of borrowed, and built upon, this from the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “no one is free until we are all free” quote.  It’s a sentiment that, unfortunately, not enough people adhere to, because there are far too many people in this world who are really enslaved, or live in slave-like conditions.  This is a blight upon humanity.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw.”   —   Nelson Mandela

(This statement could be argued a few different ways.  But, even for the most strident law and order types the loss of privacy, and other basic civil rights, puts all of us on the fringe of becoming outlaws.  Be well . . . be vigilant and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(A very good reason to wait for that cog train!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Also, not forgiving is one of the most stressful things you can do to your mind . . . and body.  Resentment locks you up, but forgiveness can set you free.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”   —   Nelson Mandela

(But first, someone needs to instill in you – or, you’ll need to develop on your own – a sense of self-confidence, in order to live the life you are capable of living.  Demonstrate to your children that you believe they can accomplish what they want to do.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
