Buchi Emecheta

  • It was true what they said, she thought, that if you don't have children the longing for them will kill you, and if you do, the worrying over them will kill you.

  • ... a hungry man is an angry one.

  • But who made the law that we should not hope in our daughters? We women subscribe to that law more than anyone. Until we change all this, it is still a man's world, which women will always help to build.

  • Few things are as bad as a guilty conscience.

Buchi Emecheta, Nigerian-born English writer

(1944)
