Quote from the Bedouin

“When God was going to create the horse, he said to the South Wind, ‘I want to make a creature out of you to honour my saints, to humiliate my enemies, to favour those who are so obedient to me’. The South Wind replied ‘Make it, Lord’. Then God took a handful of the South Wind and created the horse from it. ‘Your name should be Arabic, good shall be tied to the hair of your forelock, the booty to your back, you shall be given the task of extending the maintenance of life; I have made your owner your friend; I have favoured you over the beasts of burden; I have granted you the power to fly without wings.”
