“It might be hard for you to understand this being an outsider; but South Africa holds the souls of its sons and daughters in an almost inescapable gasp. History cast all of us in a strange and gripping drama, but I had deserted the stage. I had no idea what my role was, and felt I would never be whole until I found out!”

joyous celebration, will remain forever in the hearts and minds
of a nation reborn. When tears came, and there was dampness in
the eyes of even the most stern, it was for putting the past in
the past and hoping for hope in the future.”

Sharing some musings by our dearest mom

Mom's Thoughts: Just sharing Some of Our Dear Mom's Favourite Thoughts

10524005_1084440891586017_1935509494818154539_nSharing some musings by our dearest mom, Hazel Margaret Lock (07/01/1922 – 02/06/06) * written over the years.

With the elections virually upon us thought this quotation from Alan Paton’s book ‘Instrument of Thy Peace’ very significant:

“You must hope for the best and prepare for the worst.”

10th May 1994

Today, the inaugeration of the first black President in our first democratic government: what a day of jubilance, tears, sadness, happiness, nostalgia, optimism for the future and above all peace. Today embraced every human emotion, by which people of all colours and creeds were joined together. It was like a garden suddenly opening every bud to flower and every single variety, flowering and giving off their many perfumes to each other to fill the whole garden with with the most amazing colours, vibrant and retiring, fused close together to form a picture of beauty never ever seen before. This…

“The greatness of a nation
consists not so much
in the number of its people
or the extent of its territory
as in the extent
and justice of its compassion.”
– Inscription at the Horse Memorial in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, for horses killed in the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902).

“There is only one thing that has power completely, and that is love. Because when a man loves, he seeks no power, and therefore he has power. Only strive for power, if it is not at the cost (expense) of other men (people). Power corrupts. You first have to be pure and righteous before one can attain power. I believe that love is a greater force than power.”

– Alan Paton, great South African humanitarian and author of the greatly moving book ‘Cry the Beloved Country’ (1946).
