Posted by on Apr 23, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

Desmond Tutu (1931-), Archbishop EmeritusĀ of Cape Town, anti-apartheid and human rights activist, winner of the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize, and chair of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, has consistently championed the cause of the vulnerable, being willing to speak truth to power in a wide range of circumstances. Here are a few of his many notable insights…

  • Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace. Desmond Tutu
  • I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown down from the table of someone who considers himself my master. I want the full menu of human rights. Desmond Tutu
  • Religion is like a knife: you can either use it to cut bread, or stick in someone’s back. Desmond Tutu
  • If you want peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies. Desmond Tutu
  • Your ordinary acts of love and hope point to the extraordinary promise that every human life is of inestimable value. Desmond Tutu

As always, nice chatting…
