Once upon a time her French Professor taught her a statement she never forgot it even for a moment. He said to her and her colleagues that he never cared about giving him right answer to his question, his grand endless concern ever was asking him the right question. How could she forget this cornerstone? How might she ignore this marvelous way of thinking? However, she was never that dark miser person. She spent all her academic life teaching this quote to her variant students. It was not that static theoretical letters to mention and bye bye, it was proof of life, abstract life inside books pages, and outside in the concrete practical one. That generous delicate Egyptian woman was always ready to give, to learn, to teach, to help. She had the useful healthy human scientific roots to cultivate her own unique tree, to state herself as Suhair al-Qalamawi.
