Ayi Kwei Armah

Ghanaian Author

"Happy are those whose life is today and only today. Sad are the prophets and those others whose eyes are open to the past. Blessed are they who neither see their painful yesterdays nor their tomorrows filled with despair: they rest in peace."

"The present is where we get lost - if we forget our past and have no vision of the future."
