Below is a list of historical figures (some are from recent history or even modern day, but I am bunching them all together) that I have been inspired
from in one form or another. I don't agree with some of the actions some of these individuals did, but I wanted to compile a list all in one place
and share it here for discussion. Feel free to add other individuals who inspired you. Here we go:
Johann Sebastian Bach
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Robert Nesta Marley
General George Patton
Theodore Roosevelt Jr
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King Jr.
Saladin (An-Nasir Salah ad-Din Yusuf ibn Ayyub)
William Melvin "Bill" Hicks
Sammy Davis Jr.
Immortal Technique (Felipe Andres Coronel)
Judge Andrew Napolitano
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni
I'm sure there are dozens more I can't think of right now.
Thanks for sharing - I am a huge fan of the great Greek philosophers!
Agreed, I too think I'm a fairly important 'historical figure' - perhaps in the future "my city will build monuments, listin my accomplishments"
(lyrics from a song called Summer Reading List by Spitta Andretti)
Hmmm, Churchill, Patton, several of the Civil War generals (it's fascinating when you realize that so many on both sides attended West point together
and so many knew each other), several of the ancient Romans.
