This Moslem guy sounds stuck in history. I think he could use some acute haemorrhagic amnesia, so that he, and all Moslems, can get on with living life as life, instead of as just a addenda to History.
An old adage I just made up says:
Live your life as if you were born yesterday
and were three thousand years old;
Live your life as if you were to die tomorrow
and were to live millennia more.
«"You'll know you've been successful if, when you leave, nobody knows who you are," the friend advised. In other words: Keep your head down, stay out of the newspapers, don't make powerful enemies.»
But the words I try to live my life by are: There's always room for Jell-O!
