Quotes

...Kaba said an independent and fair judicial process, based on the rulerule of law and not dictated by politics, is the best way to fight impunity. "The act of justice is not an act of vengeance" he said
And what does Billy think of his sweet ride? According to his mum Tanea: "He loves his Ute". She added: "He loves getting bogged, loves going off road. He really loves it."
...Perserve has a "Greater Good" section similar to the "Goop Giving" section. Perserve will also donate 5% of every purchase towards their goal of "giving 5,000 children a meal, 2,000 children a blanket, and 2,700 children a warm hoodie."
But when I put that to him, he expressed his surprise that I should think that way, and told me: "I do not know what you call success but I do not look at what we have done in that way. I just do things because I feel they need to be done."
