Chinua Achebe Quote: “Africa is people” may seem too simple and too obvious to some of us. But I have found in the course of my travels through the world that the most simple things can still givwe us a lot of trouble, even the brightest among us: this is particularly so in matters concerning Africa.”
Chinua Achebe Quote: “But let the slave who sees another cast into a shallow grave know that he will be buried in the same way when his day comes.”

Chinua Achebe Quote: “Americans, it seems to me, tend to protect their children from the harshness of life, in their interest. That’s not the way my people rear their children. They let them experience the world as it is.”
Chinua Achebe Quote: “Our humanity is contingent on the humanity of our fellows. No person or group can be human alone. We rise above the animal together, or not at all. If we learned that lesson even this late in the day, we would have taken a truly millennial step forward.”
Chinua Achebe Quote: “The dispossession that caused my shrillness is in retreat though the marks of its pillage are still everywhere. I can see, in spite of them, that I have come a long way.”

Chinua Achebe Quote: “A man who asks questions does not lose his way; that is what our fathers taught us.”
Chinua Achebe Quote: “Nations enshrine mediocrity as their modus operandi, and create the fertile ground for the rise of tyrants and other base elements of the society, by silently assenting to the dismantling of systems of excellence because they do not immediately benefit one specific ethnic, racial, political, or special-interest group. That, in my humble opinion, is precisely where Nigeria finds itself today!”
Chinua Achebe Quote: “As the saying goes, the unexamined life is not worth-living.”
Chinua Achebe Quote: “I do not see that it is necessary for any people to prove to another that they build cathedrals or pyramids before they can be entitled to peace and safety.”
