If I hold her foot she says ‘Don’t touch!’
But when I hold her waist-beads she pretends not to know.”

 “If you had been poor in your last life I would have asked you to be rich when you come again. But you were rich. If you had been a coward, I would have asked you to bring courage. But you were a fearless warrior. If you had died young, I would have asked you to get life. But you lived long. So I shall ask you to come again the way you came before.”
Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart  


~In Reverence To One of My Favorite ThinkersAlbert Chinualumogu Achebe (1930-2013)~
