Nurturing Thursday: Line of thought

I always prefer to share positive quotes for “Nurturing Thursday” and my regular readers might have noticed it. We all have one or the other problem in our lives but our positive attitude and hard work help to overcome the difficult situations and make our lives better.

Earlier this week I came across a quote which upset me. I am sharing it with you. Since the quote relates to the past nothing much can be done unless we decide to play our part in society more rational in present days.

The quote is by Desmond Tutu:

“When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said “Let us pray.” We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.”

I can’t stay with neagativity for longer so I found this another quote by Desmond,

“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
