Desmond Tutu

"We are bound up in a delicate network of interdependence because, as we say in our African idiom, a person is a person through other persons...Thus to forgive is indeed the best form of self-interest since anger, resentment, and revenge are corrosive of that summum bonum, that greatest good, communal harmony that enhances the humanity and personhood of all in the community."

from, No Future Without Forgiveness
