Today, the 21st March, is Human Rights Day in South Africa. These are some thought-provoking quotes that I want to share with the readers…
"We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colours… but they all have to learn to live in the same box." – Author Unknown.
"I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do." – Edward Everett.
"If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain. If I can ease one life the aching, or cool one pain, or help one fainting robin unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain." – Emily Dickinson.
"Hope is power." – Amnesty International.
"All men are born free, but everywhere they are in chains." – Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
"In Africa there is a concept known as ubuntu – the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world, it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievement of others." – Nelson Mandela.
