Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Ben  Rhodes
#1. The one thing that seemed to be on our side, however, was the reality on the streets of Egypt. Day after day, the protests spread and Mubarak's regime seemed to crumble around him. On February 11, I woke to the news that Mubarak had fled to the resort town of Sharm el Sheikh and resigned.
It was, it seemed, a happy ending. Jubilant crowds celebrated in the streets of Cairo. I drafted a statement for Obama that drew comparisons between what had just taken place and some of the iconic movements of the past several decades - Germans tearing down a wall, Indonesians upending a dictatorship, Indians marching nonviolently for independence.
I went up to the Oval Office that morning to review the statement with Obama. "You should feel good about this," he said.
"I do," I replied. "Though I'm not sure all of the principals do."
"You know," he said, "one of the things that made it easier for me is that I didn't really know Mubarak." He mentioned that George H. W. Bush had called Mubarak at the height of the protests to express his support. "But it's not just Bush. The Clintons, Gates, Biden - they've known Mubarak[…] "for decades." I thought of Biden's perennial line: All foreign policy is an "extension of personal relationships. "If it had been King Abdullah," Obama said, referring to the young Jordanian monarch with whom he'd struck up a friendship, "I don't know if I could have done the same thing."
As Obama delivered a statement to a smattering of press, it #Quote by Ben Rhodes
Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Hassan Nasrallah
#2. The Palestinian must stop throwing stones, and the Israelis must stop firing rockets. And in the view of the Sharm el-Sheikh summit, rockets are equal to stones. #Quote by Hassan Nasrallah
Hanan El Sheikh quotes by John  Kean
#3. As the author of Lost Wife, Saw Barracuda - True Stories from a Sharm el Sheikh Scuba Diving Instructor, I know a thing or two about guide books but I have never quite seen anything like the Buns Guide before. There is certainly nothing arse-about-face with this book and indeed you have to admire the author's cheek, although thankfully he didn't include a photo of it here!

What shines through in this quality-produced book is "Stryke" Clayton's intelligence, wit and ability to get away with a subject normally found in magazines and websites of questionable pedigree. The result is a hilarious and surprisingly tasteful book written by someone who would probably feel at home in the cast of Monty Python's Flying Circus.

The Buns Guide is a great poke in the ribs at those nature guide books and the plastic animal or fish identity picture cards they sell in national parks around the world. With so many parts to the female anatomy I'm sure the author may well be considering a sequel or two?

A great read, very funny and a well-produced book. Full marks here! #Quote by John Kean
Hanan El Sheikh quotes by El Lissitzky

Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Michael Parenti
#6. Most social revolutions begin peaceably. Why would it be other-wise? Who would not prefer to assemble and demonstrate rather than engage in mortal combat against pitiless forces that enjoy every advantage in mobility and firepower? Revolutions in Russia, China, Vietnam, and El Salvador all began peacefully, with crowds of peasants and workers launching nonviolent protests only to be met with violent oppression from the authorities. Peaceful protest and reform are exactly what the people are denied by the ruling oligarchs. The dissidents who continue to fight back, who try to defend themselves from the oligarchs' repressive fury, are then called "violent revolutionaries" and "terrorists. #Quote by Michael Parenti
Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Shereen El Feki

Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Neal Stephenson
#16. Babel is a Biblical term for Babylon. The word is Semitic; Bab means gate and El means Cod, so Babel means 'Gate of God.' But it is probably also somewhat onomatopoeic, imitating someone
who speaks in an incomprehensible tongue. The Bible is full of puns. #Quote by Neal Stephenson

Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Malak El Halabi
#19. There are people you meet that light the darkest corners of your mind. They don't ask you questions. They don't intimidate you. They just look at you and they smile. They smile because they know what it feels like to have been where you are or because they have this inner ability to understand where you are coming from. They don't hold your hand. They don't hug you. They don't tell you it's going to be okay or shower you with words of love. They give you some of their time and a bit of their presence. And something only few people really master:
To listen genuinely to what you have to say. #Quote by Malak El Halabi
Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Lauren Dane
#20. You know, El, you're so much more than the time you were with Bill and the attack. You took something shitty and you made a new future. Most people don't do that. They hang on forever. It's easy to stay in that pit of despair. Or let it be your excuse for not moving on. #Quote by Lauren Dane

Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Amal El-Mohtar
#24. It occurs to me to dwell on what a microcosm we are of the war as a whole, you and I. An action and an equal and opposite reaction. My viney-hivey elfworld, as you say, versus your techy-mechy dystopia. We both know it's nothing so simple, any more than a letter's reply is its opposite. But which egg preceded what platypus? The ends don't always resemble our means. #Quote by Amal El-Mohtar
Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Kristen Ashley
#25. The Coffee Guy, whose name is Rosie by the way, has moved to El Salvador.' I lied.
This was not met with happy noises.
'He's turned his back on coffee and is in the wilds of Central America building houses for the poor. I think we should all take a moment away from our quest for coffee-satisfaction and think about this noble decision. As you clamor for caffeine and curse the hard-working but innocent staff at my store, Rosie is sitting in the bed of a beat-up pickup bumping across roads to make one room homes out of mud for those who have nothing at all #Quote by Kristen Ashley

Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Bilquis Sheikh
#31. As I sat in the hotel room, I realized that in fact I had left my heavenly Father again. By allowing myself to become anxious, I had run off from His comforting Presence. When would I learn that I cannot worry and trust God at the same time! I relaxed in my chair and felt at peace again. "Oh, thank You, Father," I said weeping in relief. "Please forgive me for stepping away from You. You are here, You are in that hall. I'll be all right. #Quote by Bilquis Sheikh

Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Jose N Harris
#33. My mother would always ask us if anyone wanted to learn how to cook or to sew or to iron clothes. I always ran to her - "Me! Me! Me!" So, my mom would teach me. I secretly feared that I might be condemning myself to a life of sissyhood. One day she said it was good that I learned these things because I was never going to be strong or handsome or smart or popular like my older brother, Jesús. He was "el molde" (the mold) I would never be a good copy of him. She said that I might never find a girlfriend or get married - so it was good that I was learning to take care of myself. It freaked me out. I wanted to be strong, handsome, smart, and popular like my brother, Jesús. I never felt like I was. I was just a bad copy... #Quote by Jose N Harris
Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#34. My son is not very complicated, Mariotta, although the artifice glitters. He's afraid - "

"Afraid!" Blue eyes, dead of feeling, looked into blue. "Afraid of what? Damned by the church and condemned by the law: what possible capacity for fear can heart and head still find? Oimè el cor, oimè la testa … After five years of villainy, I promise you, I have the refinement of a cow-cabbage."

" - Afraid I might puncture the cocoon of Attic detachment. What we see is acting, isn't it, Francis?"

"Is it?" he said derisively. "You won't get your diamonds back, I fear, when the curtain comes down. And the name, please, is Lymond: a new medal: choose the trussell or the pile. My present face is the provident, forbearing one. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Ali Sheikh
#35. You know what happens at any magic show? When the magician says 'look here, look here,' the audience looks only there and nowhere else. And that's exactly what happened at the earnings conference today. #Quote by Ali Sheikh
Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Evinda Lepins
#36. What, whom we put our hope in determines our stability! EL #Quote by Evinda Lepins
Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Simon & Garfunkel
#37. El Condor Pasa"

I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail
Yes I would
If I could, I surely would
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail.
Yes I would
If I only could, I surely would.

Away, I'd rather sail away
Like a swan that's here and gone
A man gets tied up to the ground
He gives the world
Its saddest sound, its saddest sound

I'd rather be a forest than a street.
Yes I would
If I could, I surely would.
I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet
Yes I would
If I only could, I surely would #Quote by Simon & Garfunkel
Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Chris Bell

Hanan El Sheikh quotes by Majed El Shafie
#39. It is estimated that every three minutes somewhere in the world a Christian faces serious violations ranging from severe discrimination to outright persecution of their basic right to freedom of religion.

In total, between 200 million and 300 million Christians worldwide live with the constant threat of persecution because of their faith. #Quote by Majed El Shafie

#42. When we're putting out records that people are responding to, it's amazing. And it's obviously what we shoot for every time. It's a tricky balancing act. But as long as it's sort of a righteous idea, then you're good to go. #Quote by El-P
