Three Short Quotes from Daoud

"The best way to bury your pain is to help others and to lose yourself in that." -- pg. 64

"Chad has a great deal of oil and a great deal of oil money, but somehow the people only get a few hours of electricity a week." - p. 107

"You can walk along a mud street in N'Djamena, with old apartment houses beside you, and smoky street stalls selling richly spiced kebab lunches for your only meal of the day, when suddenly you are at the door of a four-star luxury hotel. Chad has oil wells, so there are a few grand hotels for the rich, who come to quickly take the money away before it ruins the charm of our mud and straw cities." -- pg. 108

As shared by Daoud Hari in The Translator: A Tribesman's Memoir of Darfur
