Fat Charlie tried to remember what people did in prison to pass the time, but all he could come up with was keeping secret diaries and hiding things in their bottoms. He had nothing to write on, and he felt that a definite measure of how well one was getting on in life was not having to hide things in one’s bottom. (Neil Gaiman, from Anansi Boys)

“I suppose one could say that Hitler didn’t betray his self.”

He turned.

“You are right. He did not. But millions of Germans did betray their selves. That was the tragedy. Not that one man had the courage to be evil. But that millions had not the courage to be good.” (John Fowles, from The Magus)

What I bought – 2 September 2015

After a gloomy silence, he told me a story: “I was sitting in a taxi, and the driver said to me, oh, we have to thank the whites for many things. They brought roads, bridges, tall buildings, things we didn’t know how to do. Before, we lived very poor lives. Well, I didn’t argue with him. What’s the point? That would be an argument without end. I mean, it is now dogma in all our schools that the African people lived in mystic harmony with nature, that they somehow intuitively understood the interdependence of ecological systems, without ever having to articulate them. As well articulate the air you breathe, when it is merely self-evident! Huh! I come from such a village. Perhaps some people can watch someone smearing dung on a floor and talk about the sophisticated reuse of materials, but I tell you, once they try concrete they never go back to dung. Live in natural harmony with the African wildlife, did they? Didn’t kill all the game? They would have if they could. They didn’t because they couldn’t. Look what happens when you give them AK-47s! No more elephants!”

“What did you say to the cab driver?” I asked when he’d wound down.

“Oh, I didn’t argue,” the professor said. “I just asked him where he lived. He lived in a slum in Harare. I asked him if he preferred the village. He said he did. But he can’t make any money there. So that what I told him. That’s what the white man really brought to Africa. The idea of money. The rest is all frills.” (Marq de Villiers and Sheila Hirtle, from Into Africa)
