Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

Nelson Mandela

There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.

Nelson Mandela

Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

#2 is one that makes me think, first I agreed completely, because I know I change all the time, nobody remains the same, but then I realize that the unchanged place has also changed, because nothing remains the same - and then I realized that maybe it's my perceptions that have changed, that there is the possibility I am only standing in a different place, looking at a different view

#3, good old Groucho, right on.
