“If we owe anyone something, come take it. And if anyone gives us something, stop giving it.”
This is an old Egyptian saying on the insignificance of judgemental people. Those that always have something to say and butting in other people’s business. Basically, in layman’s terms – “I don’t owe you shit and you don’t give me shit to be all up in my shit.”

My heart hurts. Anthony Bourdain was an icon to me when it came to storytelling through food. He was real, unapologetic and inspiring. May he rest in God’s eternal peace.
