on his knees

Look at this picture.  The man to the left at the feet of the Saudi king is `Adil Al-Jubayr, Saudi ambassador to Washington, and my colleague at Georgetown (he did not complete his degrees).  He went on to other things in life, like guiding Saudi princes during their visits to the US.  He went on to serve as the official interpreter of the Saudi King and amassed a fortune from what I hear.  I, on the other hand, never amassed a fortune but I never had to sit at anyone's feet.  Both of us were in the same classes and had to make choices in life courses.  I never regret my choice. That is for sure. Looking at the picture confirms my choice.
