On British

“I was about to say that my friend and I have listened to a good many strange secrets in this room, and we have had the good fortune to bring peace to many troubled souls.

Might I beg you, as time may prove to be of importance, to furnish me with the facts of your case without further delay?”

 

(The Yellow Case in Sherlock Holmes The Complete Novels and Stories Volume 1)

 

Is that how British say “just tell me your problem, man. I ain’t got much time.” in 19th century?

Oh, how sexy.

Overlooked

Every time I finish my 5-times prayer, I recite this:

رَبِّ إِنِّي لِمَا أَنْزَلْتَ إِلَيَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ

(Al-Qasash: 24)

Ya Allah sesungguhnya aku sangat membutuhkan suatu kebaikan yang Engkau turunkan kepadaku”.

I have no idea that those are the very things I literally wish for right now.
