Nelson Mandela’s Lesson on Love

NelsonMandelaSquareTKflatJr copyR

GLOBAL VIEWS: I was just in South Africa a few weeks ago and had lunch in Mandela Square in Sandton City, a commercial and entertainment hub in the heart of Johannesburg. A jovial bronzed statute of Nelson Mandela towers almost twenty feet above the sidewalk cafés and exclusive boutiques. People of different nationalities co-mingle as they dine and shop under foot. Adjacent to the luxurious Michelangelo Hotel, the statute and Square represent a South Africa that Nelson Mandela helped create – where all are considered equal under the constitution and the country itself can participate freely in the global economy.

The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
- Mahatma Gandhi

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is [the] way great spiritual giants are produced.
- Swami Vivekananda
