After reading Things Fall Apart, I felt the need for a happy post. This book really got me thinking about the relationship between the Africans and the Europeans, more so than the Heart of Darkness. I think that it was because of the different viewpoint. Anyways, I was looking for a good quote from Things Fall Apart to relate to modern day. Instead, I found a quote from my idol, Marilyn Monroe. The last line stuck with me for obvious reasons. “Good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” It is the positive side to the Second Coming.
