Famous quotes containing the word nkrumah:

    The best way of learning to be an independent sovereign state is to be an independent sovereign state.
    —Kwame Nkrumah (1900–1972)

    It is far easier for the proverbial camel to pass through the needle’s eye, hump and all, than for an erstwhile colonial administration to give sound and honest counsel of a political nature to its liberated territory.
    —Kwame Nkrumah (1900–1972)

    Revolutions are brought about by men, by men who think as men of action and act as men of thought.
    —Kwame Nkrumah (1900–1972)
