Indifference to comfort is the greatest luxury.

Though Mrs. Assad might say indifference to other people's suffering is the greatest luxury as she orders online from Harrod's.

I do not score full  points - I am not at all indifferent to bad food (though I like cheap restaurants more than expensive ones) and I love London clubs very much but I am completely indifferent to hotels and cars and gadgets and 'things'.

  1. Is this story really true or is it just propaganda?

    Asma al-Assad = a contemporary Marie Antoinette...

    I admit that this makes a good story. It's similar to Ceauşescu's "golden bathroom taps."
