“Personally, privately, I do not fear death, but I find myself unwilling to face a sudden and violent ending… Who am I? What am I? In past and in present, the answer lies in Africa; in part it lies within the whole timeless, limitless, eternal universe. How can I discover the meaning and purpose of my country if I do not first discover the meaning and purpose of my own life?” (Bessie Head)
Bessie Head, one of the giants of African philosophy and creativity, chose for herself the title of an autobiography she never wrote: Living on a Horizon.
