The Thousand And One Nights

The Thousand and One Nights
(a large collection of anonymously-authored stories of Indian, Persian and Arabian origin, compiled and edited between the 9th and 15th centuries)

“Injustice lurks in the soul; strength shows it and weakness hides it.”

  • This quote comes from The Thousand And One Nights (specifically the story of The Fisherman and the ‘Ifrit, and that tale’s sub-story: King Yunan and Duban the Sage). The translation used here is by Malcolm C. Lyons (Penguin Classics, 2010, 2019).
