Egypt Quotes

 But, what if the war goes badly? Or spreads? What if US action ignite more than oil - and set the politics of Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt ablaze?

And what possible help will this be for Washington's client state, Israel? Will they use the opportunity while the world is otherwise engaged for some ethnic cleaning of unwanted Palestinians?

 On the game of Two-Up: The game of two-up has been hugely attractive to Australian soldiers this century. They played the game in the dusty camps in South Africa: they played in the camps in Australia in 1914 and 1915: they played in Egypt and France, in and out of the line; in short they played wherever they could and whenever they could. According to one rumour during the 1914-18 war, a Turkish airman flew over a two-up school in full swing. Looking down, and seeing the raised eyes to heaven and the earnest bowing to the ground, the airman thought it would be sacrilegious to bomb these devout men at their prayers.

 Yesterday I went out at about twelve, and visited the British Museum; an exceedingly tiresome affair. It quite crushes a person to see so much at once; and I wandered from hall to hall with a weary and heavy heart, wishing (Heaven forgive me!) that the Elgin marbles and the frieze of the Parthenon were all burnt into lime, and that the granite Egyptian statues were hewn and squared into building stones, and that the mummies had all turned to dust, two thousand years ago; and, in fine, that all the material relics of so many successive ages had disappeared with the generations that produced them. The present is burthened too much with the past.

 In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone, Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws The only shadow that the Desart knows: - "I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone, "The King of Kings; this mighty City shows "The wonders of my hand." - The City's gone, - Nought but the Leg remaining to disclose The site of this forgotten Babylon. We wonder,- and some Hunter may express Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace, He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess What powerful but unrecorded race Once dwelt in that annihilated place.
