Veronique Tadjo "Far from My Father"

"An intellectual? Just what that mean, an intellectual? It's not because you have a few diplomas that you're better than other people or make better decisions about how to live your life."

"You want to know what makes a real leader? I'm going to tell you: it's someone who knows how to put what's been broken back together, to reconnect those people who have been divided. But you have to have a vision to get there and that's what we're missing in this damned country!"

"Look around you, but at the same time, act as if you're on a plane that has just lost pressure. Don't forget to put on your oxygen mask before helping anyone else."
