What the King Giveth, the King Taketh Away [Quote - 70]
It was a long time ago.
“We were both in the mosque. This super-good Muslim and me. But he was a really good guy, though. Then he suddenly comes rushing to me and says: “Do you know the king has issued a decree for democracy?”
He was all excited. He could barely contain his joy.
I say to him: “Don’t you know what the king giveth, the king taketh away?”
He looked at me, puzzled, even pained I thought. I am not sure he understood what I was saying.
Or maybe he did. And I just burst his bubble.
Should I feel terrible thinking about it? I don’t know. He was a good man.” (Dr. Pasha)
