„The wind of change is blowing through this continent“

—  Harold Macmillan
Context: The most striking of all the impressions I have formed since I left London a month ago is of the strength of this African national consciousness. In different places it may take different forms but it is happening everywhere. The wind of change is blowing through this continent. Whether we like it or not, this growth of national consciousness is a political fact. We must all accept it as a fact. "Mr Macmillan's appeal to South Africans", The Times, 4 February 1960, p. 15. Speech to the South African Parliament, 3 February 1960.
