Africa is not a country, but it is a continent like none other. It has that which is elegantly vast or awfully little.
Africa Quotes : pic 001271622
The continent is too large to describe. It is a veritable ocean, a separate planet, a varied, immensely rich cosmos. Only with the greatest simplification, for the sake of convenience, can we say 'Africa'. In reality, except as a geographical appellation, Africa does not exist.

I haven't traveled in Africa nearly as much as I'd like to. I've been there a few times, and I'd like to learn more about the various cultures in Africa. But that's the basis point of where all of the music that I love is based upon, from Africa to Cuba to Puerto Rico to South America.
Africa Quotes : pic 001075822
Africa is a continent in flames. And deep down, if we really accepted that Africans were equal to us, we would all do more to put the fire out. We're standing around with watering cans, when what we really need is the fire brigade.

In the family of continents, Africa is the silent, the brooding sister, courted for centuries by knight-errant empires - rejecting them one by one and severally, because she is too sage and a little bored with the importunity of it all.
Africa Quotes : pic 001656676

There is always something new out of Africa.
Africa Quotes : pic 000142811

The idea of traveling in Africa for me is based on going by road or train or bus or whatever and crossing borders. You can't travel easily or at all through some countries.
Africa Quotes : pic 001080239
In Africa, listening is a guiding principle. It's a principle that's been lost in the constant chatter of the Western world, where no one seems to have the time or even the desire to listen to anyone else.

The future of Africa lies not with external actors but within Africa itself. The future of Africa lies here in Africa.
Africa Quotes : pic 000430066
Africa is a paradox which illustrates and highlights neo-colonialism . Her earth is rich, yet the products that come from above and below the soil continue to enrich, not Africans predominantly, but groups and individuals who operate to Africa's impoverishment.
Africa Quotes : pic 000234726
Disempowerment - whether defined in terms of a lack of self-confidence , apathy, fear, or an inability to take charge of one's own life - is perhaps the most unrecognised problem in Africa today.

Africa is always only portrayed as a continent of suffering, but most figures are vastly exaggerated.
Africa Quotes : pic 000123080
For Africa to me ... is more than a glamorous fact. It is a historical truth. No man can know where he is going unless he knows exactly where he has been and exactly how he arrived at his present place.
Africa Quotes : pic 000669265
This world was not created piecemeal. Africa was born no later and no earlier than any other geographical area on this globe. Africans, no more and no less than other men, possess all human attributes, talents and deficiencies, virtues and faults.
Africa Quotes : pic 000139434

Africa Quotes : pic 000953468

Africa Quotes : pic 000635713

Africa Quotes : pic 000090875
I don't think Africa gets as much credit as it should have on the world stage. People tend to think of us as coming from The Dark Continent, where nothing good goes on. That's not true. A huge amount of, as I say, entrepreneurship goes on.
Africa Quotes : pic 000388518
Because I am an African I reserve the right to say that Africa does not exist simply to make people in this country the UK, or anywhere else in the developed world, feel good about themselves.
