“Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s 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
from his book “Long Walk to Freedom: Autobiography of Nelson Mandela”

Let us teach our sons and our daughters what real Love is, with blisters on the soles of its feet.
Let us show them that valuing ourselves, loving who we are and who we can become through right thinking and right action, is what leads to success in all areas of Life.
Let us all bear in mind the timeless words of Confucius (551-497 BC), a Chinese sage of times past:
“The demands that a gentleman makes are upon himself; those that a small man makes are upon others.”
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style.”
~ Maya Angelou
