I am not sure I can recall two such significant bits of wisdom in 
such a short e-mail thread.

Fatimata's quotation is one of the more powerful ways of creating 
change that I know of, and it strikes me that Mohamed's comment is 
indeed true (certainly for much of the world) and I know of few other 
things that bring together so many otherwise diverse people.
