O Emir, I congratulate you on the resignation with which you accept his judgment. I congratulate you upon the age in which he has cast your life. He who in a moment of uncertainty would inform himself of his future should not heed his inte nike air max 90 ntions and hopes; by studying his present conditions, he will find himself an oracle unto himself. He should address his best mind to the question, ‚I am now in a road; if I keep it, where will I arrive?‘ And wisdom will answer, ‚What are thy desires? For what art thou fitted? What are the opportunities of the time?‘ Most fortunate, O Emir, if nike air max there be correspondence between the desire, the fitness, and the opportunity!“

The vulgar would call me an astrologer–not a professional practising for profit, but an adept seeking information because it lifts me so much nearer Allah and his sublimest mysteries. Very lately I found a celestial horoscope announcing a change in the status of the world. The masterful waves, as you may know, have for many ages flowed from the West; but now, the old Roman impetus having at last spent itself, a refluence is to set in, and the East in its turn pour a dominating flood upon the West.
