Book recommendation: Ben Okri "A way of being free"

"Y'all, a serious serious recommendation - A Way of Being Free - Ben Okri. Its a MUST read, profound, moving, incredible. Its about writing, and its about life, and transformation, and philosophy and and and. Get a copy, however you can, get it and read it."
Emma Arogundade ‎

"It is not what you have experienced that makes you greater, but what you have faced, what you have transcended, what you have unlearned"

"We live by stories, we also live in them. One way or another we are living the stories planted in us early or along the way, or we are also living the stories we planted, knowingly or unknowingly in ourselves. We live stories that either give our lives meaning, or negate it with meaninglessness. If we change the stories we live by, quite possibly we change our lives"
