Great T.E. Lawrence Quote

T.E. Lawrence

“Learn all you can…. Get to know their families, clans and tribes, friends and enemies, wells, hills and roads. Do all this by listening and by indirect inquiry. … Get to speak their dialect … not yours. Until you can understand their allusions, avoid getting deep into conversation or you will drop bricks.”

– T.E. Lawrence-
The Arab Bulletin
20 August 1917
