Nelson Mandela

Some of the most generous words ever written:

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

Abraham Lincoln, 2nd inaugural address, March 4, 1865

These seem appropriate for Nelson Mandela, who talked a good talk, and walked an amazing walk.
