The Beduin of the Desert


“The Beduin of the desert, born and grown up in it, had embraced with all his soul this nakedness too harsh for volunteers, for the reason, felt but inarticulate, that there he found himself indubitably free.

He lost material ties, comforts, all superfluities and other complications to achieve a personal liberty which haunted starvation and death.

In his life he had air and winds, sun and light, open spaces and a great emptiness. There was no human effort, no fecundity in Nature: just the heaven above and the unspotted earth beneath.”

T.E. Lawrence
