Citations Chinua Achebe


„There is no story that is not true, [... ] The world has no end, and what is good among one people is an abomination with others.“

— Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart
Context: "We have heard stories about white men who make the powerful guns and the strong drinks and took slaves away across the seas, but no one thought the stories were true." [said Obierika] "There is no story that is not true," said Uchendu. "The world has no end, and what is good among one people is an abomination with others. We have albinos among us. Do you not think that they came to our clan by mistake, that they have strayed from their way to a land where everybody is like them?" Chapter 15 (p. 130)
