“Traveling—it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
Ibn Battuta, The Travels of Ibn Battutah

“traveling - it gives you home in thousand strange places, then leaves you a stranger in your own land.”
Ibn Battuta

“مررت يوماً بعض أزقة دمشق فرأيت بها مملوكاً صغيراً قد سقطت من يده صحفة من الفخار الصيني وهم يسمونها الصحن فتكسرت واجتمع عليه الناس فقال له بعضهم اجمع شقفها واحملها معك لصاحب أوقاف الأواني فجمعها وذهب الرجل معه إليه فأراه إياها فدفع له ما اشترى به مثل ذلك الصحن وهذا من أحسن الأعمال فإن سيد الغلام لابد له أن يضربه على كسر الصحن أو ينهره وهو أيضاً ينكسر قلبه ويتغير لأجل ذلك فكان هذا الوقف جيراً للقلوب جزى الله خيراً من تسامت همته في الخير إلى مثل هذا.”
Ibn Battuta, رحلة ابن بطوطة - تحفة النظَار في غرائب الأمصار وعجائب الأسفار
