Chinua Achebe Gets The Quote of The Day

Chinua Achebe Dies

African Author Chinua Achebe, author of Things Fall Apart  (not the Pema Chodron book, and not the Roots Album!) and many other works, died today. My friend Nadxi sent me this quote, which seems quite dharmic. I think it’s about letting go.

“The impatient idealist says: ‘Give me a place to stand and I shall move the earth.’ But such a place does not exist. We all have to stand on the earth itself and go with her at her pace.”Chinua Achebe, No Longer at Ease
