Hi Gazelle in the Shadowseveryone,

Quotes by Michelle Peach  (?)

“The Arab people are known for their friendliness and generosity towards foreigners. I remember once, at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the ambassador told me to never openly admire something that an Arab person had in their possession because they would feel obliged by custom to give it to you even if it meant the world to them”
Michelle Peach, Gazelle in the Shadows

“In the solitude, I blamed myself for my recklessness. Now, the real consequences of my actions were staring at me. I held tight to the slippery optimism of my own survival. It's all my fault”
Michelle Peach, Gazelle in the Shadows

“I thought of John, when he shared with me how hard it was to be an MI6 officer, as many accolades and patriotic missions are never shared, nor even written in the history books. He once told me to tell a truth, but bend it or wrap it with a story, then it's not so much a lie but artistic license”
Michelle Peach, Gazelle in the Shadows
