Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“It is usually unbearably painful to read a book by an author who knows way less than you do, unless the book is a novel.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Aberjhani
“As life in general constituted much pain in the form of struggles against poverty, disease, ignorance, and emotional anguish, what more civilized way for people to alleviate the same than by giving themselves to one another as brothers and sisters in deed as well as in word? A society of people hoping to become politically superior needed first to become spiritually valid.”
Aberjhani, The Wisdom of W.E.B. Du Bois
