ـ "... إن فى الإنسان منطقة عجيبة سحيقة لا تصل إليها الفضيلة ولا الرذيلة ، ولا تشع فيها شمس العقل والإرادة ، ولا ينطق لسان المنطق ، ولا تطاع القوانين والأوضاع ، ولا تتداول فيها لغة أو تستخدم كلمة ... إنما هى مملكة نائية عن عالم الألفاظ والمعاني ... كل مافيها شفاف هفاف يأتي بالأعاجيب فى طرفة عين ... يكفي أن ترن فى أرجائها نبرة ، أو تبرق لمحة ، أو ينشر شذا عطر ، حتى يتصاعد من أعماقها فى لحظة من الإحساسات والصور والذكريات ، ما يهز كياننا ويفتح نفوسنا على أشياء لا قبل لنا بوصفها ، ولا بتجسيدها ، ولو لجأ إلى أدق العبارات و أبرع اللغات ...

توفيق الحكيم

Within man lies a deep wondrous spot, to which neither virtue nor vice can reach. Upon which the sun of reason and will never rises. In which the mouth of logic never speaks, the laws and rules are never obeyed, and not a language is used nor a word is ever spoken.
It is a distant Kingdom, beyond words and meanings. With everything is a sheer murmur offering wonders in a blink. From the depths of which, suffice a single tone or a flash of mind or a scent of a perfum, to allow rise of emotions, pictures and memories, a rising that will shake our being and open ourselves to things we can neither describe nor materialize even if we used the most refined of phrases or the most skillful of languages.

Tawfiq Al-Hakim.

Wills & Kate

P.S. I liked this flash segment on a british site :D made me laugh actually especially the last slide!. and turned it into pictures here.







The news had it yesterday, they are officially engaged. Prince William and Katherine Middleton are engaged, with the same famous sapphire engagement ring of Lady Di, his late mother. Anyway, my reflection on the matter, besides wishing him a much better luck than his parents, Is that they actually had known each other for Nine years, broke up briefly in 2007 an then got together again.
He's 28 , she's six month older. He's literally, an officer and a gentleman, who can really afford financially getting married at 21 if he wanted to, but nobody told him you got to get married!. she's 28, nobody told her she's way late and losing time or geting old and so!. They really got to know each other well, and took a step ahead when they felt it was right! Like that so much. But then again that was UK, not ARE ! :)
Well done Wills & Kate :) and good luck.
