Sheikh Zayed, the Visionary

 
Photo of a billboard above a shop in Mussafah of beloved late President Sheikh Zayed. This visionary has many famous quotes.
Here's three of my favourites:

“The real asset of any advanced nation is its people, especially the educated ones, and the prosperity and success of the people are measured by the standard of their education.”

“On land and in the sea, our fore-fathers lived and survived in this environment. They were able to do so because they recognised the need to conserve it, to take from it only what they needed to live, and to preserve it for succeeding generations.”

“We must not rely on oil alone as the main source of our national income. We have to diversify the sources of our revenue and construct economic projects that will ensure a free, stable and dignified life for the people.”

I like that tear under the eye, reminding us that we are all so fragile.

Although I only spotted the tear after I'd posted it does add a lot to the photo. Don't you think his eyes look so lifelike?
