“The best cure for racism is to have somebody shoot at you. Man, it does not matter then what color the arse is that comes to save yours-black or white, you're ready to give it a big fat kiss.”
Wilbur Smith, Golden Fox

“It's a strange paradox that a man gifted with too many talents can fritter them all away without developing a single one to its full.”
Wilbur Smith, Rage

“A man follows the path laid out for him. He does his duty to God and his King. He does what he must do, not what pleases him. God's truth, boy, what kind of world would this be if every man did what pleased him alone? Who would plough the fields and reap the harvest, if every man had the right to say, 'I don't want to do that.' In this world there is a place for every man, but every man must know his place.”
Wilbur Smith, Monsoon
