Quotes from Omar Sharif's Characters

    1. Narrator: The white rain is not a friend to the hunter.
    From 10,000 B.C.. Submitted by Jed G (13 months ago)
    1. Ibrahim: To find out if a country is rich or poor, look at the bins. If there are bins and no rubbish, it's rich. If there's rubbish by the bins, it's neither rich nor poor... it's touristy. And if there's rubbish but no bins, then it's poor.
