Thoughts from writers

"It has something to do with Africa, this uneasy feeling that's growing in me as I drive north. This feeling that there's something going on in the streets and in people's minds and among people that could be dangerous. Or is Africa just the name we give to things we struggle to understand?" - Dana Snyman, The Long Way Home

"To my mind only a food would pretend to understand comprehensively what South Africa is really about, or be objective and far sighted enough to glimpse its future" - Breyten Breytenbach
(From one of South Africa's favourite sons at a time when the world - including the South African part of it - seems determined to find simple answers to explain South Africa)
