Believe: The Words and Inspiration of Desmond Tutu

I enjoyed reading the short book Believe: The Words and Inspiration of Desmond Tutu. It’s a great little coffee table book filled with thought-provoking quotes and inspiration from this man who is an incredible gift to our world! Here are a couple of those quotes to whet your appetite:

“In a happy family you don’t receive in proportion to your input. You receive in relation to your needs.”

“My father always used to say, ‘Don’t raise your voice. Improve your argument.’ Good sense does not always lie with the loudest shouters, nor can we say that a large, unruly crowd is always the best arbiter of what is right.”

“Differences are not intended to separate, to alienate. We are different precisely in order to realize our need of one another.”

“We humans can tolerate suffering, but we cannot tolerate meaninglessness.”
