“What is important is the story. Because when we are all dust and teeth and kicked-up bits of skin - when we're dancing with our own skeletons - our words might be all that's left of us.”
Alexandra Fuller, Scribbling the Cat

“You learn not to mourn every little thing out here, or you’d never, ever stop grieving.”
Alexandra Fuller, Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness

“How you see a country depends on whether you are driving through it, or live in it. How you see a country depends on whether or not you can leave it, if you have to.”
Alexandra Fuller, Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood
