Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013

Two of his many memorable quotations (thanks to Huffington Post):
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.
I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.
Addendum: my friend John Wirenius has these sage remarks.
