Alexander: The Making of a God

Alexander the Great?


For my own part, I would rather excel in knowledge
of the highest secrets of philosophy than in arms.
– Alexander the Great

There are a many incredible people throughout history that did amazing things that seem to defy normal human ability.
Napoleon was one. Alexander another.
I believe that if the truth about these people in what they achieved
and how they were able to do it were revealed,
most people would not believe it.
Yet I feel because of this I feel most depictions fall short.
How is possible to credibly reveal such a thing? or person?
Which is not to say that what they did would be held as positive or noble
in achievement by us – only that were able to do so.

Solve this my friend … and the Gordian Knot is childsplay.

Whatever possession we gain by our sword cannot be sure or lasting, but the love gained by kindness and moderation is certain and durable.

  1. This is another great blog post. I just watched this trailer this past week. It looks like its going to be very interesting to watch. I did finish a class that was looking at Rome and how the empire started, and we looked at Alexander the great. There is also a documentary series made about the Roman Empire.

    1. I’m not as educated as I should be about Alexander or Rome, so I’ll look to improve my knowledge before watching it. It is all a facinating study for me. Thanks Quinn.
