[David Set His Foot In A Gap Higher Up The Barbed Wire...When Would The Searchlight Come?They Could Not Be Certain Of Hitting Him In The Dark...and If They Did Not Hurry, He Would Be Over...Why Didn't They Hurry Up. Then He Stopped. He Would Run No More.When The Beam Of Light Caught Him,they Should See Him Walking Away Quite Calmly. Then They Would Not Enjoy It So Much; They Would Feel Cheated. The Thought Filled David With Triumph. I Am David]

Quotes About Kings Rulers

"I consider the positions of kings and rulers as that of dust motes. I observe treasure of gold and gems as so many bricksand pebbles. I look upon the finest silken robes as tattered rags.

I discern the highest conception of emancipation as golden brocade in a dream, and view the holy path of theilluminated one as flowers appearing in ones eyes. I see meditation as a pillar of a mountain, Nirvana as a nightmare ofdaytime.

Quotes About Expats

"After a year or two, the long term expats wont see the beggars the same way. After a year or two, the cheeky young monks wont make them smile. After a year or two, the newest restaurant opening wont pull them in. To preserve they will withdraw and settle. They will come to accept the limits of it all. The hype wont bother them. The promise wont motivate them. They will have accepted their odd expat life, their awkward place in the chimera that is Myanmar today." - Author: Craig Hodges
