Proverb of the day

Ahram Online , Thursday 5 Mar 2015

I give my opinion..

afti

أفتى معرفتى و راحتى ماعرفش

Afti Maarefti w rahti maarafshi

Translation: I give my opinion within the boundaries of my knowledge and my comfort is beside the point.

Meaning: I take responsibility for my words and my actions. I am not a double-faced, self-seeking person who will tell you what you want to hear simply because it would be more comfortable for both of us. I will speak the truth even if it is a bit disturbing. This
is a proclamation of honesty at a time when honesty is in short supply.
