Favorite Riyadh Quotes

1. "Di bulan April 1978, di Aiglemont, Gouviuex, Prancis sebuah seminar diadakan oleh Aga Khan untuk membahas arsitektur Islam.

A Zulu raised in New Rochelle would be an orthodontist. People are all the same, though their circumstances differ terribly."
Author: P.J. O'Rourke
5. "His heart is pounding and when he kisses her it is as if the whole of Riyadh disappears – the wide sky, the hard surface of the roof, the date palms and the water wells."
Author: Sara Sheridan
