When I first went to university a phrase that describes academics stuck with me, "the world according to dead white men".

As only the best built buildings stand the test of time, so it is with wisdom.

Yet Chinese civilization has been around much longer, so I always though that if we instead learned the world according to dead Chinese men maybe things would have been different.

Did we forget our own legend ,Khalid Bin Alwaleed,what we need right now men with courage and Principal who are willing to struggle to defend what is rightly ours.

The thing that amazed me about Khaled Bin Alwaleed the thing he said when he was about to die, in his bed. It is a big lesson that what god destined for you will get you, so that you wont fear anyone, but how can we believe in that in our hearts.
He said:
"ليس في جسمي موضع شبر إلا وفيه طعنة برمح أو ضربة بسيف أو رمية بنبل، وهاأنذا أموت على فراشي كما يموت البعير فلانامت أعين الجبناء

Bilal,
You always strike a nerve, "Do we really believe?"

Bakkouz,
So true...

Khaled,
Welcome to my blog...

Mohannad,
Not exactly, it is about making your enemy act as you wish... without even fighting...

Hani,
The Chinese civilization has alot to offer...

Urduni,
I don't think there is anything wrong with seeking wisdom even if it is inspired by others... Ofcourse, this doesn't mean that we should foresake our own history and values...
