Al Darmaki said: “Achieving these goals requires sincerity of intention, love of society and finding a motive for work, in addition to adopting the positive word and not favoring negative criticism that causes despair among others, and this is what we are witnessing from the leadership of the UAE at the level of motivation for positive citizenship.”
Al Darmaki pointed out that people suffer in this age of anxiety and that those who have a strong determination can activate their hobbies and turn them into an inspiring lifestyle. He considered that the importance of reading lies in pushing people to embrace life and motivating them to cling to ambition and overcome obstacles.
