Miriama Bâ

  • Joyous miracle of birth, dark miracle of death. Between the two, a life, a destiny.

  • If over the years, and passing through the realities of life, dreams die, I still keep intact my memories, the salt of remembrance.

  • Friendship has splendors that love knows not. It grows stronger when crossed, whereas obstacles kill love. Friendship resists time, which wearies and severs couples. It has heights unknown to love.

  • The nation is made up of all the families, rich or poor, united or separated, aware or unaware. The success of a nation therefore depends inevitably on the family.

Miriama Bâ, Senegalese writer

(1918 - 1981)
