The sun will shine on those who stand before it shines on those who kneel before them – Things Fall Apart.
– Thoughts –
Things Fall Apart is one of those books that you read as a child that changed your life, especially if you read it in High School and had an amazing English Teacher like I did, but every time I’ve read it since, I’ve learned something new about the world and also myself. Those are the types of books that I consider Literature. Books that you read, year after year and it never ceases to open your eyes to culture, to the world, to think about yourself in a way that maybe you hadn’t until that very moment.
Chinua Achebe is my inspiration tonight.
