A Quote by Marc Ian Barasch on kindess, compassion, goodness, life, love, and nelson mandela

Nelson Mandela once remarked that he befriended his jailers, those grim, khaki-clad overseers of his decades of hard labor in a limestone quarry, by "exploiting their good qualities." Asked if he believed all people were kind at their core, he responded, "There is no doubt whatsoever, provided you are able to arouse their inherent goodness." If that sounds like wishful thinking, well, he actually did it.

A Quote by Mayflower on nelson mandela, mayflower, and forgiveness

If you are carrying the burden of hate, anger, pain, bitterness over what someone has done to you.  I ask you what are you gaining from this state, what are the benefits? What are the losses, what are the missed opportunities you have experience from this state of living?  Have compassion for yourself and put that burden down, and feel the lightness of being and see the difference.
