Quote by Omar Sharif
The reason it has relevance is because I, as a popular Arab personality - the Arab people like me and respect me - thought it was time for me to make an ever so tiny statement about what I thought about this whole thing.
This quote highlights the significance of the speaker's influential position as a popular Arab personality. They acknowledge their broad support and respect among the Arab people, which gives weight to their decision to express their thoughts on a particular matter. By emphasizing their intention to make a small statement, they suggest their desire to contribute to the ongoing discourse while recognizing their limited impact. Overall, the quote emphasizes the speaker's individual perspective and the importance of their voice in the conversation.
To me a book is a message from the gods to mankind; or, if not, should never be published at all. A message from the gods should be delivered at once. It is damnably blasphemous to talk about the autumn season and so on. How dare the author or publisher demand a price for doing his duty, the highest and most honorable to which a man can be called?
Imaginary obstacles are insurmountable. Real ones aren't. But you can't tell the difference when you have no real information. Fear can create even more imaginary obstacles than ignorance can. That's why the smallest step away from speculation and into reality can be an amazing relief. The Reality Solution means: Do it before you're ready.
