But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.”
Nelson Mandela

James A. Michener
“I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.”
James A. Michener

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Americanah
