The below quote is from the book ...

A Return to Love
Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles
Marianne Williamson

This quote has been incorrectly attributed to
Nelson Mandela in his inaugural speech of 1994.
He never spoke these words in his speeches that year.
You can read Nelson's actual inaugural speeches at this link:

"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 darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so
that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other
people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."

Our thank you to Chris Ehren Life, author of Reflections on Physical Immortality,
for informing us that Nelson Mandela did not use this quote in an inaugural speech.

Time Magazine Person of the Century
Poll Results : no longer active

As you can see by Adolph Hitler being #4 on the list as of this day, October 5th, 1999, the hate groups are winning this poll.... Their members think nothing of simply getting their members to get on the net and vote and revote and revote from different locations.  Good Works On Earth supports Nelson Mandela and Lady Diana and Nikola Tesla as three who have most influenced this century, so far.  We still have a few months to go!

Now as you can see, that paragraph is quite old.

Adolph got #3.
Nelson got #18.
An astounding 'fact' in Time Magazine.

Have you read the Star Art of AMERICANS
North Americans, South Americans, Eastern Americans,
Western Americans or Central Americans ...
It's a scream, as Americans care ...
It's a song in the songster's care.
Can an anthem heal the hate ?
Can a ballad suspend time ?
A healing anthem can ..
An able ballad can ...
