Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
—Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I am no longer my own, but thine.
Put me to what thou wilt,
rank me with whom thou wilt.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee,
exalted for thee or brought low for thee.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let em have nothing.
I freely and heartily yield all things
to they pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
"Love never claims, it ever gives; love never suffers, never resents; never revenges itself. Where there is love, there is life. Hatred leads to destruction."

"You can’t ascribe great cosmic significance to a simple Earthly event. Coincidence, that’s all anything ever is, nothing more than coincidence. There are no miracles. There is no such thing as fate. Nothing is meant to be."

“Humility is the only true wisdom by which we prepare our minds for all the possible changes of life.” - George Arliss
Humility reminds us that we’re no more important than anyone else.
Humility reminds us that no amount of success we’ve in the past guarantees success in the future.
Humility reminds us that it’s not about us.
Humility reminds us that each individual in this world matters.
Humility reminds us to focus on what really matters.
Humility makes us more authentic, which breeds trust.
Humility makes us better professionals, better leaders, and better human beings.
The truth is, no matter how many wins you have, no matter how successful you are, no matter how happy you are, a dose of failure (whether at work, in a relationship, or any other aspect of your life) - as hard as it can be, can lead to a dose of humility, which to me, is one of the most valuable ingredients to prosperity.
I received that dose of humility, and for that, I am grateful.
Nelson Mandela, one of the world’s most courageous leaders, has passed away. South Africa –indeed, the whole world – is saying goodbye to a great human being and an incredible inspiration. I am among the millions around the world who feel a deep sense of loss. The fact that Mr. Mandela lived to the age of 95 does not diminish in any way our feeling of immense grief; nor does the fact that his health has been frail for a while now, severely limiting his public engagements.
By the force of his amazing personality, his incredible achievements, his sweeping vision, his enormous generosity and his admirable values, Mr. Mandela’s presence served — and will continue to serve — as a beacon for all those who believed in the power of political good eventually overcoming divisive evil.
Thank you very much Nelson Mandela – for all the good that you delivered to so many, and for all those that you helped, both in South Africa and well beyond. We are deeply indebted to you and, already, we miss you enormously. We will never forget you.
