People I greatly admire …
- Marcus Aurelius: Emperor of Rome: Died march 17th - 180AD
- Miyamoto Musashi: Died June 13th - 1645
- Socrates: Died 399 B.C
- Socrates was a Greek philosopher from Athens who is credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy, and as being the first moral philosopher of the Western ethical tradition of thought. Taught via the Socratic questioning method. All about enquiry - rarely making declarative statements.
- Ayaan Hirsi Ali: Alive and kicking
- A Somali-born Dutch-American activist, feminist, author, scholar and former politician. Wonderful advocate of women’s rights and big on push-back on
- Islam; she regards it as a religion of intolerance. Author of Infidel. Has a price on her head; put there by Ayatollah Khomeni for her blasphemy against the ‘prophet’. What a heroin!
