Quotes by Wole Soyinka.

1.      The greatest threat to freedom is the absence of criticism.
2. It's the place to begin, always -- to return to home, literally.

3. My father used to tell me stories before I fell asleep. When the children would gather, at a certain point, I had a tendency to make up my own elementary variations on stories I had heard, or to invent totally new ones.

4. We live in a materialist word, and materialism appeals so strongly to humanity, no matter where.

5. And I believe that the best learning process of any kind is just to look at the work of others.

6. For me, justice is the prime condition of humanity.

7. Power is domination, control, and therefore a very selective form of truth, which is a lie.

8. I am convinced that Nigeria would have been a more highly developed country without the oil. I wished we’d never smelled the fumes of petroleum.

9. A war, with its attendant human suffering, must, when that evil is unavoidable, be made to fragment more than buildings: It must shatter the foundation of thought and re-create. Only in this way does every individual share in the cataclysm and understand the purpose of sacrifice.
