Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe

These are some of my favorite quotes from Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart.

“If you don’t like my story,write your own”

“A child cannot pay for its mother’s milk.”

“When a man is at peace with his gods and ancestors, his harvest will be good or bad according to the strength of his arm.”

“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.”

“When the moon is shining the cripple becomes hungry for a walk”
