Desmond Tutu quotes
You can never win a war against terror as long as there are conditions in the world that make
people desperate -poverty, disease, ignorance, etc. I think people are beginning to realize
that you can't have pockets of prosperity in one part of the world and huge deserts of
poverty and deprivation, and think that you can have a stable and secure world.
When we see others as the enemy, we risk becoming what we hate. When we oppress
others, we end up oppressing ourselves. All of our humanity is dependent upon recognizing
the humanity in others.
We in South Africa had a relatively peaceful transition. If our madness could end as it did, it
must be possible to do the same everywhere else in the world. If peace could come to South
Africa, surely it can come to the Holy Land.
It is for real that injustice and oppression will not have the last word. There was a time when
Hitler looked like he was going to vanquish all of Europe, and where is he now?
You must show the world that you abhor fighting.
