“Man is the basis of any civilized process. Our interest in man is necessary because he/she is the focus of all real progress, regardless of the buildings, facilities, schools and hospitals … Whatever we have extended from bridges and built from adornments, it remains a material entity without spirit and unable to continue. The spirit of all that human, a man capable of thinking, creating, using his potentials to maintain all these facilities and progress and grow with them”

-Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, may Allah rest his soul
