Quote of the Day (Nelson Mandela, on ‘What Counts in Life’)

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”—The late South African President Nelson Mandela, “Address on the 90th Birthday Celebration of Walter Sisulu,” Johannesburg, South Africa, May 18, 2002
