(**) The Girl Who Married a Lion : and Other Tales from Africa by Alexander Mccall Smith

I don't read much non-fiction as you can tell by now. However this book is a quick read, and perhaps can give us some insight into what life may been like before writing when oral traditions and stories were the primary method of passing on cultural and moral wisdom. Life was simple in those days; the pursuit of food, water, shelter, a good mate, protection from animals, etc. The stories reflect this simplicity, but have you ponder that for 1000's of generations, this is how we learned. Not life changing.

Sorry, not quotes for fiction.
