The Story

"...only the story...can continue beyond the war and the warrior. it is the story that outlives the sound of war drums and the exploits of brave fighters. it is the story ... that saves our progeny from blundering like blind beggars into the spikes of the cactus fence. the story is our escort; without it, we are blind. does the blind man own his escort? No, neither do we the story; rather it is the story that owns us and directs us."

Chinua Achebe.
