    There really is no one quite like Dr. Maya Angelou. She reaches into your soul and and warms you up.

      Totally agree. She’s another soul I wish could “live forever.” Her words will, of course.

    Madiba quotes. Last one had me cackling!

    “I now know that when my time comes, Walter will be there to meet me, and I am almost certain he will hold out an enrolment form to register me into the ANC in that world, cajoling me with one of his favourite songs we sang when mobilising people behind the Freedom Charter…” — On the death of struggle stalwart Walter Sisulu in 2003.

    “I don’t know if I’ll ever die. There is that possibility. If that happens I’ll move to the next world… and the first thing I’ll look for will be the nearest branch of the ANC.”

    “I voted for South Africa.” — Asked which party got his vote in the 2000 local government elections.

    “At least we have the right to get drunk.” — After South Africa failed in 2000 to clinch the 2006 soccer World Cup tournament.
