The renowned cleric said, “Some of you who know a little bit about my background, you know when they talk about people coming from a rocky background, that means from a background of hardship.

My own rocky background was rock among the rocks. My father was so poor, (that) poor people called him poor. The elders have a saying, when there is hardship for the husband, and hardship for the wife, there must be hardship for the children.
