“Life is unbearable without hope.”

A figurative translation of the Arabic embroidered verse extracted from an old Arabic poem by Al-Tughrai who lived in the 11th-12th centuries.

Hope, a decision to keep going forward despite difficult times and tough life challenges …

“ما أضيق العيش لولا فسحة الأمل”
(Arabic transliteration “ma addyaq el-aysh lawla fushat-el-amal”)
