Weekend Quote from a Book - Repaying Debts
Dabasir borrowed from his friends and could not repay them. Things went from bad to worse. His wife returned to her father and he left Babylon. He fell in with robbers and were taken to Damascus and sold as slaves. Dabasir was purchased for two silver pieces by a Syrian desert chief and became a camel tender for his daughter who is intrigued with Dabasir’s background.

“If a man has within him the soul of a free man, will he not become respected and honored in his own city in spite of his misfortune?” “Have you a desire to repay the just debts you owe in Babylon? She parried.

“Yes I have the desire, but see no way.” Said Dabasir.

“…thou hast but the contemptible soul of a slave. No man is otherwise who cannot respect himself and no man can respect himself who does not repay honest debts.”

Dabasir’s debts were his enemy and he had been run out of town. If he had stood up and fought like a man, he would have found respect.

“If I had the soul of a free man, I would force my way back into Babylon, repay the people who had trusted me, bring happiness to my wife who truly loved me and bring peace and contentment to me parents.”
