A quote from Desmond Tutu

by oneafrikan on June 2, 2009

Desmond Tutu spoke at my school once, and he was awesome. Always enjoyed his sense of humour and pragmatism towards the issues we face.

Came across this, this morning, and wanted to share:
“A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.”

Good qoute. Andy Hadfield opened his chapter of the SA Blook with that one exactly, and you can read how he built on it here -> http://www.andyhadfield.com/2008/06/sa-blook-chapter-12-connecting-south.html . A good read.
