Gem

“The rocks in the water don’t know how the rocks in the sun feel,” said a Haitian proverb. In one of his speeches, Aristide had revised it by saying, “The rocks in the water are going to find out how the rocks in the sun feel.”

From Mountains Beyond Mountains p.110 by Tracy Kidder

Never underestimate the ability of a small group of people to change the world.

  1. Just finished it, wouldn’t have read it if you hadn’t recommended it, wouldn’t have continued reading initially if you hadn’t recommended it, I have some complaints about it but I don’t regret it, and that Haitian proverb made the first 110 pages worth it, and I got something even more important and beneficial out of the last 200 hundred pages, maybe I’ll tell you when you return in sha Allah.

    I hope you and the boys had a fun eid.
