Leymah Gbowee: Ubuntu: "I am what I am because of who we all are." 

Archbishop Desmond Tutu: One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. 

We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.

Nelson Mandela: traveller through a country would stop at a village and he didn't have to ask for food or for water. Once he stops, the people give him food, entertain him."
