Quote of the Day: Jacob Zuma

“I knew the risk was very minimal
Jacob Zuma, Former Deputy President of South Africa

Who says very minimal!

Zuma said he knew there was a risk of getting HIV AIDS, but he believed it was small, from knowledge he had gained while serving on the Aids Council. This is after having sex with his HIV-positive rape accuser.

After the intercourse Jacob Zuma took a shower. “It… would minimise the risk of contracting the disease,” he told the court.

And this guy was our Deputy President, don’t you just wish he was still in power? Tell me again why he has a few thousand supporters outside the court room everyday?

I’m just loving the headlines News24 are coming up with:

Chris Rock’s “Quote of the Year” 2005

“You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America’s Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn’t want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named Bush, Dick, and Colon. Need I say more?”

Quotes of the Day

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson – American Poet, Lecturer and Essayist, 1803-1882

“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.”

Mary Anne Radmacher

Quote of the Day

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our dark that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people don’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. Its not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsiously give other people the right to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
