‘’Why would a sultan, rich and powerful like a king, wear a pair of old, ugly and smelly sandals? The answer is very simple: they are a gift. These old, ugly and smelly sandals were given to me by an Italian who, long ago, in the middle of a war, came to visit me. He stayed in my camp for less than a week and then, when he decided to leave, he hugged me, took off his sandals, these sandals, he gave them to me and I have worn them every day since then. That man was called Francesco, he came from a city called Assisi, and I can assure you that he has been the man who has taught me the most that nothing is impossible if you really want it. It is an unusual story, I know, it sounds strange to me too, but if you try to follow me step by step, it will still seem less strange.’’
