Quotable Quotes

It is my conviction that if we are neutral in situations of injustice, we have chosen the side of the oppressor. The world must learn about respect, listening and forgiveness. - Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Humour Without Malice

David and Wilson were lost in desert. They were dying of thirst when they came upon an oasis, and there was a mosque. David to Wilson, "Look! There is a mosque, lets pretend we are Muslims, otherwise we'll not get any food or water. I am going to call myself 'Ahmad'." Wilson refused to change his name and said: "My name is Wilson and I will never pretend to be other than what I am!". The imam of the mosque received both of them well and asked for their names. David: "I am Ahmad." Wilson: "I am Wilson". Imam turned to his helpers and said, "Bring some food for Wilson only." And then Imam turned towards David and said, "Ramadhan Mubarak, Brother Ahmad!".

Hikmah
