Thank you. As most historical documents of merit tend to come from the eastern hemisphere it is nice to view some philosophies from that part of the world.

I LOVE these! I especially like, "The people we love don't die when they are buried, but when we forget them." Do you like Kahlil Gibran? "The Prophet" was very popular in the US when I was in my 20s. Everyone used quotes for marriage, on plaques, etc. I love Emerson. My favorite quote of all time it Neitzche's: "He who has a WHY to his existence can bear with almost any HOW. Cheers, Billie

Thank you Taleb. I feel lucky getting another list of inspirations that some great people have said. I find this one very mystique -

"There are people who have the mysterious power of being able to walk on others' hearts, without feeling guilty"

Very thoughtful share. Blessings to you and your family:=)-Tonette

Taleb, sorry to bother you again, but how did you design that? I created a "poster" for facebook and it looked terrible. I always using Paintshop pro. I thought I set it at 300 dpi. Do you have a program that makes posters easily?

These quotes are beautiful, and I truly enjoyed reading them. The truth is that Arabic culture is not so different from everybody else's culture...we all just express the same thoughts differently. Great job!
