where the well lies

“The desert is beautiful,” the little prince added.

    “It is as though a man were deeply in love with a very fascinating but cruel woman. She treats him badly, and the world crumples in his hand; at night she smiles on him and the whole world is a paradise. The desert smiles and there is no place on earth worth living in but the desert.” Ahmed Hassanein Pasha in describing the desert in his book “The Lost Oases”
