“Those who are blessed with the power and the soaring swiftness of the eagle and have flown before, let them go.
I will travel slowly, and I too will arrive.
And they have climbed in haste,
Let them go.
I will journey softly,
But I too will arrive.”
“‘Ah, contrey, so these fat yessir-men in jokers’ suits, they are the people going to lead us?’
‘Aaah, contrey broke oo, contrey no broke oo, we dey inside’”
“‘ This house belongs to Mike.’
Whatever happens to the soul of a little African child that grows up thinking of himself as Mike?”
“‘So my mouth is closed,
As my ears are open,
In order that I may hear what you bring with you.’
There was this boatman falling back upon the ancient dignity of formal speech. In front of him there was no longer a master, but another man needing his help.”
