Yesterday marked the birth of T. E. Lawrence, the British Army Officer who acted as a liaison during the Arab Revolt against Ottoman-Turkish rule during 1916-18. He is better known as Lawrence of Arabia.
He wrote the Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph.
‘All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible’
‘I loved you, so I drew these tides of men into my hands/and wrote my will across the sky in stars’
‘The printing press is the greatest weapon in the armory of the modern commander’
‘Immorality, I know. Immortality, I cannot judge’
