We are good fighters but lousy builders. Our last piece of original architecture was during ancient Egypt. What are we known for now? A continent plagued with inadequate health facilities but rich Ministers of Health. ~ Michael Matogo

Quotes[edit]

  • On behalf of the American people, I thank the world for its outpouring of support. America will never forget the sounds of our National Anthem playing at Buckingham Palace, on the streets of Paris, and at Berlin's Brandenburg Gate. We will not forget South Korean children gathering to pray outside our embassy in Seoul, or the prayers of sympathy offered at a mosque in Cairo. We will not forget moments of silence and days of mourning in Australia and Africa...
  • Egypt! from whose all dateless tombs arose
    Forgotten Pharaohs from their long repose,
    And shook within their pyramids to hear
    A new Cambyses thundering in their ear;
    While the dark shades of forty ages stood
    Like startled giants by Nile's famous flood.
    • Lord Byron, The Age of Bronze (1823), V; reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 218.
  • That is the scary and dangerous thing about now trying to do business with Egypt because you've got these agencies that are fighting amongst themselves
  • And they spoiled the Egyptians.
    • Exodus, XII. 36; reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 218.
  • The Egyptian scales of justice are not reversible. There is no justice in Egypt. No reason. Logic committed suicide a while ago. Egypt went crazy. Egypt is ruled by a bunch of lunatics.
  • We are good fighters but lousy builders. Our last piece of original architecture was during ancient Egypt. What are we known for now?
