“If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don’t want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.”

― David Livingstone

 

While Henry Stanley was exploring in Africa, a voyage in which he found Scottish missionary David Livingstone, he heard dozens of fables and stories from locals. He rewrote and published these fables under the title ‘My Dark Companions’, a collection of 19 stories which Stanley thought best exemplified the culture of the African natives.
