At the secondary school, I came to realize for the first time what city dwellers were and what class officers meant. . . . My classmates were naturally better dressed than I was but I never suffered because of this. Many of my friends came from wealthy families and lived in luxurious houses, yet I cannot recall ever wishing to possess what they had. --Anwar el-Sadat
