– The Late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, First President of the United Arab Emirates and ‘Father of the Nation.’


2. 


Everybody starts small. We all begin life as a single cell. Every business starts as one person with an idea. How fast you go, how far you get, is in your hands. The bigger your vision, the bigger your achievement will be. Will you stumble on the way? Perhaps, but we cannot let fear keep us small. We have to be brave to be big.”

― H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, and Ruler of Dubai.

– Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates, the Emir of Abu Dhabi and the commander of Union Defense Force.

“I am a firm believer that the true progress of a society or a nation can be determined by the way it treats women. Progressive thinking and economic prosperity are meaningless unless women are given the respect and honor they deserve; women should always be considered equal to their male counterparts. This is another area where the UAE is setting a fine example for regional countries. In the UAE today, women have proved their worth in every domain, be it medicine, engineering, media, sports, finance, or politics.”
– Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi, Minister for Foreign Trade and was former Minister of Economic and Planning of the United Arab Emirates.

“It is a sad fact that although governments are quick to agree that humanitarian aid is a necessity in ensuring the wellbeing of our global community, the matter of funding this aid is often a thorny issue. To address this challenge I believe we need to start with the acceptance that we all carry a responsibility towards others, in greater or smaller measure. This might seem an abstract concept, but without a willingness to shoulder this responsibility, any solutions reached will at best be short term.”
– Sheikha Jawaher Mohammed Al Qasimi, H.H. Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Wife of H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Ruler of Sharjah, Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs, Honorary Patron of Sharjah Businesswomen Council and the UNHCR’s first Eminent Advocate.

– Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development.
