there is no one way to anything

Chinua Achebe:

There is no one way to anything. The Ibo people who made that proverb (“Wherever something stands, something else will stand beside it”) are very insistent on this — there is no absolute anything. They are against excess — their world is a world of dualities… If there is one God, fine. There will be others as well. If there is one point of view, fine. There will be a second point of view.
