Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
– Henry David Thoreau
If I were not African, I wonder whether it would be clear to me that Africa is a place where the people do not need limp gifts of fish but sturdy fishing rods and fair access to the pond. I wonder whether I would realize that while African nations have a failure of leadership, they also have dynamic people with agency and voices.
– Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
