Wisdom from the greatest voices of reason who are, or have ever been, in our world

17th November

And now the end is near

And so I face the final curtain,

My friends, I'll say it clear,

I'll state my case of which I'm certain.

I've lived a life that's full, I've travelled each and every highway

And more, much more than this, I did it my way.

Paul Anka, My Way

Ability is a wonderful thing, but its value is greatly enhanced by dependability. Ability implies repeatability and accountability.

Robert A Heinlein

For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.

Nelson Mandela

A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

Maya Angelou

I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot...and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that’s precisely why I succeed.

Michael Jordan
