Daily quote – April the 7th

”The Arab world also won the Nobel with me. I believe that international doors have opened, and that from now on, literate people will consider Arab literature also. We deserve that recognition.” – Naguib Mahfouz

As we speak, I am reading a book by Egyptian Nobel Price Winner Naguib Mahfouz, called ”Children of Gebelawi”. His novels are very famous all over the Arab world, and his life has been a very remarkable one. (Muslim extremists tried to kill him because of ”Children of Gebelawi”.) More information on him as soon as I’ve finished the novel.
