Mosquito

 

These days, some talk about fellow human beings as being “human garbage”. Others try to sleep in garbage as they wait for a miracle.

Nothing new.

 

“Mosquito, she had said, had asked Ear to marry him, whereupon Ear fell on the floor in uncontrollable laughter. ‘How much longer do you think you will live?’ she asked. ‘You are already a skeleton.’ Mosquito went away humiliated, and any time he passed her way he told Ear that he was still alive.”

– Chinua Achebe

"The essence of non-violent technique is 
that it seeks to liquidate antagonisms
but not the antagonists."
