There is Nothing Impossible to Him Who Will Try

“The whole earth is the tomb of heroic men and their story is not given only on stone over their clay but abides everywhere without visible symbol woven into the stuff of other mens lives”
— Pericles

Alexander might as well have descended from the Gods, for he was both heroic and divine. King of Macedonia by 19, King of Kings before 30. The greatest military genius of the ancient world, he never lost a battle in uniting East and West, building a kingdom the likes of which the world had never seen before. 

Philip laid the seeds of the empire he would command to conquer the world. Aristotle ingrained the ideals of ethics and virtue. Olympia ignited the fire that would carry him further than anyone had gone before. Emulating Achilles, defying Hades, forging into the expanse of the great unknown before him. Alexander became a demigod.

The glory and memory of man belongs to those who followed their great visions. Alexander believed in the unity of the human race. That divisions of race and culture were but superficial. He set out on the herculean task, not to conquer, but to unite. One world, united under the sun, with liberty and justice for all.
