More from Alex McCall Smith!

August 17, 2006

Some more quotes from Alexander McCall Smith’s The Full Cupboard of Life:

And that was surely what most people wanted, at the end of the day; to live on the land that they love, and nowhere else; to be where their people had been before them, as long as anybody could remember.

A society that undermined its teachers and ther authority only dug away at its own sure foundations.

…was the truth of the old African saying that it takes an entire village to raise a child. Of course it deos; of course it does.
