"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Jumblat Urges Avoiding 'Crippling Demands' in Govt. Formation- Naharnet

Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat called Sunday on all political forces to avoid “crippling demands” regarding the line-up of the new government.
“What's important is to facilitate the formation of the Cabinet and shun crippling demands,” Jumblat tweeted, during or shortly after a key speech in Baabda by newly-elected President Michel Aoun.
Aoun's election and the appointment of Saad Hariri as Prime Minister-designate have raised hopes that Lebanon can begin tackling challenges including a stagnant economy, a moribund political class and the influx of more than a million Syrian refugees.
