Bangambiki Habyarimana
“Those who would give us equal opportunity for everybody are threatened by it. They are afraid to lose their privileged positions. They pay lip service to it, they act by half measures and do everything to violate the laws they have themselves instituted to make sure the high class is always high. It never changes, it always goes in a circle, when the oppressed fight and get to the top, and they become the new elite and forget the promises.”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, Book of Wisdom

“There was a time in Africa the people could fly. Mauma told me this one night when I was ten years old. She said, “Handful, your granny-mauma saw it for herself. She say they flew over trees and clouds. She say they flew like blackbirds. When we came here, we left that magic behind.”
She looked at my face, how it flowed with sorrow and doubt, and she said, "You don't believe me? Where you think these shoulder blades of yours come from, girl?"
We weren't some special people who had lost our magic. We were slave people, and we weren't going anywhere. It was later I saw what she meant. We could fly all right, but it wasn't any magic to it.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Invention of Wings

حميد العقابي
“ما أثار استغرابنا ليس توهمنا سماع صوت سحب أقسام البنادق فحسب، بل اكتشافنا اننا طوال سيرنا التي تجاوزت بضع ساعات كنا نتوهم صوت رئيس العرفاء يحثنا على السير و يحذرنا من الوقوف، حيث اننا اكتشفنا ان لاوجود لرئيس العرفاء أصلاً.
- ألم نسمع صوت رئيس العرفاء طوال الطريق و هو يردد يمين يسار؟
سأل رجل فلم يجبه أحد و لكنني رددت مع نفسي بيقين :
- إنه صوت نفسك الأمارة بالعبودية!”
حميد العقابي, الفئران

Harriet Beecher Stowe
“¡Ay, ese niño, cuánto lo quería! ¡Se parecía muchísimo a mi pobre Henry! ¡Pero había decidido que nunca más dejaría que un hijo mío viviera para hacerse adulto! Cogí al pequeño en brazos cuando tenía dos semanas y lo besé y lloré; y después le di láudano y lo estreché contra mi pecho hasta que murió en sueños. ¡Cómo lo eché de menos! Cualquiera hubiera pensado que administrarle el láudano fue un error, pero es una de las pocas cosas de las que me alegro ahora. No me arrepiento tampoco hoy; por lo menos ha dejado de sufrir. ¿Qué le podía dar mejor que la muerta, a la pobre criatura?”
Harriet Beecher Stowe
