Wole Soyinka is Africa's equivalent of William Shakespeare, and not one to shy away from tyrants.

Happy Birthday to the Nobel Laureate. Wishing you more fruitful years.

My tribute: Quotes from the Great Man.

'The man dies in all who keep silent in the face of tyranny'.

'Power is domination, control, and therefore a very selective form of truth which is a lie'.

'Under a dictatorship, a nation ceases to exist. All that remains is fiefdom, a planet of slaves regimented by aliens from outer space'.

'The greatest threat to freedom is the absence of criticism'.

'Looking at the faces of people, one gets the feeling there's a lot of work to be done'.

'I am convinced that Nigeria would have been a more highly developed country without the oil. I wished we'd never smelled the fumes of petroleum'.

'I cannot belong to a nation which permits such barbarities as stoning to death and amputation-I don't care what region it is'.

'All religion accepts that there is something called 'criminality'. And criminality cannot be excused by religious fervour'.

'Human life has meaning only to that degree and as long as it is lived in the service of humanity'.

'Education is lacking in most of those who pontificate'.

'For me, justice is the prime condition for humanity'.

'We Nigerians must reclaim our sovereignty, our civic entitlement'.

Hi Linda: I am a fan of yours living in the US; I am also a lost longtime friend of Professor Wole Soyinka. Kindly help me to wish him, through your blog, a Happy Birthday. May his life continue to be a source of inspiration to multitude of Nigerians suffering in silence. I have no way of contacting him directly. Thanks for your help. Solomon Ilori

Happy Birthday, Dearest Prof. Man of integrity and courage. Fighter for minorities. A famously straight man who has stood up for gays. A truly humane and enlightened and inclusive soul. You may not be a Christian, but you have more Christ-like humaneness and readiness to die for principle than many, many Christians. Dear Lord, spare him for many more years. We need him.
