“Death comes to us all, that is the only thing we can be certain of. It makes no difference whether it is a thief in a garbage dump or a policeman in the line of duty. When someone dies at the hands of another, the pain for the survivors is the same.”
Kjell Eriksson, The Princess of Burundi

“If we just had the time, he thought, and would often say, we could manage these kids as well. All they lacked was time and resources.”
Kjell Eriksson, The Princess of Burundi

“It had also become harder to discuss this with his colleagues. All too often Sammy’s speeches about the importance of good neighborhoods and schools were met only with dismissive comments. It was self-evident, it was written on every wall, they seemed to say,”
Kjell Eriksson, The Princess of Burundi
