“They are immigrants to this country and if young blacks remain at the stage where they are today they will say makabva kupi imi? Nyika ndeyedu. But it must be nyika ndeyedu tese, varungu nevanhu vatema.”

“The children now love luxury, they have bad manners, contempt for authority, they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise.

As quoted in Animated Architecture (1982) by Derek Walker
