Thursday quote

When the white missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said "Let us pray."  We closed our eyes.  When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land. 

Desmond Tutu. 

Reminds me of the Kanak elder on New Caledonia who said to me, "Captain Cook, he came with nothing, and he went with everything."
