Naguib Mahfouz: Dream 142

This empty plot of land is my sole inheritance. I call it “the ruin,” because it has been neglected for so long.

After making a bit of money, I thought of building on it. Yet I didn’t make any progress, due to what I knew about the prevalence of fraud and financial corruption.

Finally, I asked a wise woman who lived next to me, “Is there an honest person left in the world?”

She answered that he indeed existed–but endless courage and resolve were needed in the ceaseless quest to find him.”

[The honest person is within]

–Naguib Mahfouz, Dreams of Departure
