Quote of the Week - King Abdullah of Jordan

"The history of ideas is full of stories of how great discoveries are reached from different directions. At the height of the Cold War, an American and a Soviet economist do independent work that wins them the Nobel Prize. Over thousands of years, three civilizations, Asian, Arab, European, build on each other's advances, to create today's global knowledge." -- His Royal Majesty King Abdullah of Jordan

From here.

Great discoveries are reached more readily and more often when man co-operates and works harmoniously with his fellow man, regardless of where his fellow man lives.

An old precise adage can make this interpretation more understandable: "No man is an island."
