Chinua Achebe
“Having spoken plainly so far, Okoye said the next half a dozen sentences in proverbs. Among the Ibo the art of conversation is regarded very highly, and proverbs are the palm-oil with which words are eaten.”
Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart

Jane Austen
“The bride and her mother could neither of them talk fast enough;”
Jane Austen, Pride & Prejudice

Chinua Achebe
“Our elders say that the sun will shine on those who stand before it shines on those who kneel under them.”
Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart

Mary Oliver
“The Summer Day

Who made the world? Who made the swan and the black bear? Who made the grasshopper? This grasshopper, I mean- the one who flung herself out of the grass, the one who is eating sugar out of my hand, who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down- who is gazing around with her enormous complicated eyes. Now she lifts pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face. Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away. I don't know exactly what prayer is. I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down into the grass, how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields, which is what I have been doing all day. Tell me, what else should I have done? Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon? Tell me, what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Mary Oliver
