Dont Raise Your Voice; Improve Your Argument.

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. This is one of the famous quotes of Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, the Apostle of non-violent struggle. This quote was part of his address at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Houghton, Johannesburg, 23 November 2004.  Check out more wise sayings of Archbishop Desmond Tutu which can help you to be focused and be on top of your game.

The quintessential cleric,bade the world farewell on Sunday,just a day after the commemoration of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ on December 26,2021 at the ripe age of 90.

Tutu, small in stature, but a Mighty anti-apartheid crusader will remain indelible for his vital role in the non- violent fight against white minority rule in South Africa.

*Be nice to whites, they need you to rediscover their humanity” — comment published on New York Times, October 19, 1984.

* We are each made for goodness, love and compassion. Our lives are transformed as much as the world is when we live with these truths.”

* “There is no peace in South Africa. There is no peace because there is no justice… When there is injustice, invariably, peace becomes a casualty.”

* I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown from the table of someone who considers himself my master. I want the full menu of rights” — a comment made on January 1985.

* If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.
