"Human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.”

Human Error

Nelson Mandela created a series of sketches on display at the Ford Foundation in NYC. The lefthand photo reads:
"These sketches are not so much about my life as they are about my own country. I drew hands because they are powerful instruments, hands can hurt or heal, punish or uplift. They can also be bound but a quest for righteousness can never be repressed. In time, we broke lose the shackles of injustice, we joined hands across social circles and national boundaries, between continents and over oceans. And now we look to the future, knowing that even if age makes us wiser guides, it is the youth that reminds us of love, of trust and the value of life."

You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world. And you have to do it all the time.

“Love is a condition so powerful; it may be that which pulls the stars in the firmament. It may be that which pushes and urges the blood in the veins. Courage: you have to have courage to love somebody because you risk everything – everything.”

From Sundance Channel’s Iconoclasts. Season 2, Episode 6. Chappelle + Angelou.

Happy birthday to this beauty, who turns 86 today.
