Zawadi Books Suggested Readings

by Kenneth and Sharon Holley of Zawadi Books in Buffalo

“Do not be proud and arrogant with your knowledge. Consult and converse with the ignorant and the wise, for the limits of art are not reached. No artist ever possesses that perfection to which he should aspire. Good speech is more hidden that greenstone (emeralds), yet it may be found among maids at the grindstone.” The Teachings of Ptahhotep edited by Asa G. Hilliard, Larry Williams and Nia Damali.
