One loses his homeland – loses all. One who does not love his homeland can love nothing. The land is good where you were fed, but not better the one you were born on. The best country is your motherland, the best friend is your mother. In his land one cannot be lost, outside it one cannot rejoice. The native land is your mother, a foreign land – stepmother. It’s better to be a poor man in your homeland than a king in Cairo. He who doesn’t live in his homeland knows nothing about the test of life. He who battles under the native skies gains the lion’s courage. To survive a winter in your native land is better than to live ten years of spring in another land. The native land – is the past, the present and the future of a nation. Each has only one native land and only one mother.
