Voices: Why We Do What We Do

In honor of Desmond Tutu, who died today, here’s one of his many gems.

“You do not do the things you do because others will necessarily join you in doing them, nor because they will ultimately prove successful. You do the things you do because the things you are doing are right.” — Desmond Tutu [1]
