gratitude-a-thon day 299: the power of words

He may be gone, but his words are still moving mountains.

“It never hurts to see the good in someone. They often act better because of it.” This is a quote from Nelson Mandela. A powerful, powerful quote. I just heard it in this short clip from a Super Soul Sunday Show–Oprah interviewing Jack Kornfield, a former monk. And it stopped me cold (actually the weather stopped me cold, but I digress). I know that when I’m around someone who expects me to be more, I am more. Simple as that. I am going to get on this bus and drive. Man, Nelson was a smart man.
