Age of Iron
"My daughter will not come back till things have changed here. She has made a vow. She will not come back to South Africa as you and she and I know it. She will certainly not apply to – what can I call them? – those people for permission to come. She will come back when they are hanging by their heels from the lampposts, she says. She will come back then to throw stones at their bodies and dance in the streets." (2.281)
For your mother, who is not here, I said within myself. Aloud I said: "Be slow to judge."
Be slow to judge: what did I mean? If I did not know, who else could be expected to? Certainly not he. (2.325-326)
"I have no answer," I said. "It is terrible."
"It is not just terrible," he said, "it is a crime. When you see a crime being committed in front of your eyes, what do you say? Do you say, 'I have seen enough, I didn't come to see sights, I want to go home'?" (3.112-113)
