Another language, another literature

One advantage of learning a new language is that it opens up a new literature to enjoy. I am now living in Qatar and learning Arabic. This is providing me with the opportunity to read Arabic books. I am at a very basic level currently but with perseverance I should be able to unlock some of the beauties of Arabic literature. This is not the first new language I have learned but I still have the brain ache from exercising my tongue and brain with an unfamiliar alphabet and vocab. Still I put it down to lifelong learning and I'm enjoying my new language. Practice makes perfect.

As one of the philosophers said, "He who has another language has another mind". I attribute this quote to the veritable Anon. but if anyone knows who this quote should be attributed to please let me know.
