“I knew that when you had fallen, the memories that charted your decline became invaluable.”
Chibundu Onuzo, The Spider King's Daughter

“Be courageous, not brave. Bravery was to dash out of the bomb shelter and grab the child left crying on the veranda. Courage was to go to the stream the day after a bomb had scattered your friend on that path because water must be fetched to sustain the life that was left.”
Chibundu Onuzo, Welcome to Lagos

“If you prefer sitting in traffic to sitting at your desk, if you pass office hours waiting for closing time, if you spend more time on Facebook than you do attending to important emails then perhaps it's time for you to consider quitting your job.”
Chibundu Onuzo, Welcome to Lagos
