I’ve read many inspirational quotes in my time but today this one really resonates:
“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
– Nelson Mandela
To quote a friend on FB:
Madiba transcended race, culture, religion and nationality – a truly great person. I urge everyone to read all the tributes that will inevitably follow.
Football’s world governing body, Fifa, has said flags will be flown at half mast and a minute’s silence will be observed before the next round of international matches, in tribute to Nelson Mandela.
