Alexander McCall Smith
Alexander McCall Smith Tea Time for the Traditionally Built (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, #10)
I think it is important to remember that, in spite of [HIV], countries in sub-Saharan Africa keep going as best they can, and therefore we should not concentrate exclusively on writing about the bad things in Africa. There is plenty of good news, and there are many very good things happening there, so why should we not celebrate these?

Tom Hiddleston
We pull on to the road, where our only company are the wandering cattle, who have become commonplace as traffic lights. Lethargic and listless, they look like they've been roaming the roads of Guinea since the dawn of time. And no doubt they will continue to long after we're gone.
Tom Hiddleston

Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson, Letters of Thomas Jefferson
