When the flame of goodness
Is cheered on by a million bonds
Of diatomic oxygen
Of hearts and souls in perfection harmony
Imbued with the burning desire
To blaze vestal fires
For the bloom of spring.
“A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed, or treated as if they were less than who they are.” – Desmond Tutu
