Best quote heard at the Rotary International Conference

The best quote that I heard at the second plenary session of the Rotary Intenational Conference in Brisbane last Monday was from Anand Panyarachun, former Prime Minister of Thailand. In his address on Conflict Resolution Mr Panyarachun spoke of the need to forgive. He commented that reprisals against evil acts lead to still more reprisals and he said;

“an eye for an eye eventually makes the whole world blind”.
