The Middle East, today, has two masters. One is deciding, ordering, being obeyed; but he is at the point of death. But the other one is silent in his conformity to law and order, calmly awaiting justice; he is a powerful giant who knows his own strength, confident in his existence and a believer in his destiny.
Khalil Gibran, New frontier (1935)

    I loved Gibran. His words are eternal. They even still ring true, even today, with the Arab Spring.

    Thank you for sharing this, my friend. Many blessings and much love to you. 🙂
