Here’s to the crazy ones…

December 2, 2018

Craig's Quotes

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

A new moral leadership is needed in the world!

November 26, 2018

as “led” by/from

“As Zimbabwe slides miserably down an apparently bottomless slope of corruption, violence and economic collapse, the Mandela moral shadow looms over the failings of leadership across the continent. (Which leads to a powerful message to other places of seemingly intractable conflict)… In South Africa repression and resistance cycled and spiralled. But there was no possible military victory against the people, no matter how powerful South Africa’s military machine. In the end, only a negotiated settlement could end the violence – and that required moral leadership, from all sides. Israel, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, the United States and many others will one day get the point; alas for those doomed to suffer till then.”

– Andrew Ladley (director of Victoria University’s Institute of Policy Studies reviewing ‘Mandela: A critical Life’ by Tom Lodge and ‘Mandela: The Authorised Portrait’ by Mac Maharaj writing his excellent review of the fore-mentioned books in the Dominion Post Indulgence, Sat Nov 4 2006.

We live a imperpect world

November 19, 2018

Site Title

As I watch what is happening around the world on T.V
I want to cry out in pain, as my heart breaks
I witness the horror of who we are and what we do.
Not only to the human race , the innocent ones, the elderly but also to our beautiful blue earth that we are turning into a rubbish dump… with polluted water, plastic for turtles to swallow , whales dying at the heating up of our oceans atmosphere changing ,the ice melting away.
After all is said and done, I know this is not and never has been a perfect world.

But does it deserve it , do we deserve it.
We are losing so much with every hour ,every minute in the day
We can change, we have been given a choice.
If only we could see ,we are alll on this road together as one.
