“Differences are not intended to separate, to alienate. We are different precisely in order to realise our need of one another”-Desmond Tutu
How boring would it be
if I was like you and you were like me?
If we all looked the same, thought the same, and liked all the same things?
Because, I love how you challenge me and what I believe, even when it makes me angry.
I love what I learn when I struggle with you, even when it makes me cry.
I love what you teach me, about myself and the world, when you share your thoughts and life experiences.
When I am weak, you are strong and when you are weak, I am strong.
We need each other.
If you really think about it, closed-mindedness and conformity are way more threatening than diversity.
How boring would it be if I was like you and you were like me?
How would we grow?
How would we even know what we’re missing?
How would we learn about forgiveness?
~ DIANA’S ENORMOUS BOOK OF QUOTES ~
Why would we even want, or need, to spend one single moment with each other?
