Here are some Arab Proverbs I found inspirational while writing Saving the Sheikh:
You need a brother, without one you're like a person rushing to battle without a weapon.
A servant who has two masters, lies to one of them.
The men are the wool of the tribe, but the women are the ones who weave the pattern.
In the desert of life the wise travel by caravan, while the fool prefers to travel alone.
Only a mother can understand the suffering of a son.
