delapan

Havel dan Kafka,

Terbilang langka manusia yang sanggup merengkuh usia 90. Nelson Mandela adalah salah satunya. Time, secara khusus, menaruh cerita tentangnya sebagai sampul pekan ini. Dalam hayat dia yang panjang, majalah itu “menemukan” delapan hal yang bisa dipelajari. Inilah:

Courage is not the absence of fear — it’s inspiring others to move beyond it

Lead from the front — but don’t leave your base behind

Lead from the back –and let others believe they are in front

Know your enemy — and learn about his favorite sport

Keep your friends close — and your rivals even closer

Appearances matter — and remember to smile

Nothing is black or white

Quitting is leading too

Penjelasan masing-masing pelajaran bercokol di sini.

PS: Mantan tahanan politik lain, Anwar Ibrahim, ditangkap lagi hari ini. Duh…
