Quote of the Day (Dag Hammarskjold, on What Life Demands)

“Life only demands from you the strength you possess. Only one feat is possible - not to have run away.”-- Dag Hammarskjold, Markings: The Diary of Dag Hammarskjold (1964)

The great U.N. Secretary-General never ran away from life, or his many responsibilities. He died on this day 50 years ago, in a plane crash en route to ceasefire negotiations in the Congo.
