"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. "

In his meetings and phone talks, Aoun stressed “the need to reconcile viewpoints among the Lebanese parties and resolve the obstacles,” the agency added.
