Desmond Tutu Quotations
- All rich, poor;
tall, short; substantial, not so substantial; beautiful, not so beautiful;
clever, stupid. All, men, women, children; old, young; white, black,
red, yellow. All, all, gay, lesbian, so-called straight. All, all, all.
- Imagine if they
really believed it. If, if as you took off with your bombers you realize,
hey, I will drop these on my family, my sisters, my brothers.
- We know this if
we are family. No outsiders. All are insiders.
- And some of Gods
best collaborators are the young, because you dream. You dream Gods
- You dream that
it is possible for this world to become a better world.
- Because when you
look around, there must be times when God said, Gee, whatever
got into me to create that lot?
- God weeps to see
our inhumanity to one another.
- And then, Gods
smile is like sunshine breaking through the rain. God smiles and says,
Yea, yea, they are helping me to realize my dream.
- Help me, help
me make this a home that is hospitable to goodness, to laughter, to
joy, to peace, to caring.
- Because there is
global insecurity, nations are engaged in a mad arms race, spending
billions of dollars wastefully on instruments of destruction, when millions
- We have the capacity
to feed ourselves several times over but we are daily haunted by the
spectacle of the gaunt dregs of humanity shuffling along in endless
queues, with bowls to collect what the charity of the world has provided,
too little too late.
- When will we learn,
when will the people of the world get up and say, enough is enough?
God created us for fellowship.
