About Bassam Z. Shakhashiri

I expect to pass through the world but once.
Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness
that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now.
Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

Attributed to Etienne de Grellet du Mabiller (1773-1855)
