Some time ago, one of the friends commented that the right spirit in blogging was just to write freely and put down whatever you have on your mind. We tend to forget this, and consequently, one begins to think like a professional writer, always worried about style, and writing something impressive. This is one of the reasons why our blogging has become so sparse. Therefore, I am thinking to change and get back to the advice above; in other words, just freely jotting down whatever one has on mind. In this way we can keep the lively discourse going more frequently.

My thought for the day comes from a famous Arabic verse:

ان انت اكرمت الكريم ملكته- وأن انت اكرمت اللئيم تمردا

Translating (the untranslatable):

If you honor the generous, (the honorable, the noble) you own him;
But if you honor the mean(the wretched, the nasty) he rebels against you.

This is certainly one of the most profound words of wisdom ever said.
