"The Arabic coffee pot has come to represent the hospitality of the Arabs, when friends and loved ones sit together over coffee, tell stories, debate politics and history and discuss everything from their past, their present and their future. It is the ultimate symbol of dialogue and union."
"In the past, interpersonal relationships and encounters with people were treasured and valued. Now, everyone seems expendable and one is lucky to be given the time of day."
