Alexander the Great, also known as Lord of Asia, was a King of Macedonia, who by the age of thirty managed to create one of the largest empires in history and is also considered to be one of history’s greatest military commanders.
In 334 BC, he invaded the Persian Empire. After a series of campaigns that lasted for 10 years, he managed to overthrow King Darius III and conquer the Persian Empire in its entirety.
His empire stretched from the Adriatic sea to the Indus river, Balkans to modern-day Pakistan. He was tutored by Aristotle until the age of 16.
Here are some of his quotes:
Glory crowns the deeds of those who expose themselves to toils and dangers.Alexander the Great
I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.Alexander the Great
You shall, I question not, find a way to the top if you diligently seek for it; for nature hath placed nothing so high that it is out of the reach of industry and valor.Alexander the Great
How should a man be capable of grooming his own horse, or of furbishing his own spear and helmet, if he allows himself to become unaccustomed to tending even his own person, which is his most treasured belonging?Alexander the Great
Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.Alexander the Great
There is something noble in hearing myself ill spoken of when I am doing well.Alexander the Great
I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well.Alexander the Great
There is nothing impossible to him who will try.Alexander the Great
Now that the wars are coming to an end, I wish you to prosper in peace. May all mortals from now on live like one people in concord and for mutual advancement. Consider the world as your country, with laws common to all and where the best will govern irrespective of tribe. I do not distinguish among men, as the narrow-minded do, both among Greeks and Barbarians. I am not interested in the descendance of the citizens or their racial origins. I classify them using one criterion: their virtue. For me every virtuous foreigner is a Greek and every evil Greek worse than a Barbarian. If differences ever develop between you never have recourse to arms, but solve them peacefully. If necessary, I should be your arbitrator.Alexander the Great
Now you fear punishment and beg for your lives, so I will let you free, if not for any other reason so that you can see the difference between a Greek king and a barbarian tyrant, so do not expect to suffer any harm from me. A king does not kill messengers.Alexander the Great
Without Knowledge, Skill cannot be focused. Without Skill, Strength cannot be brought to bear and without Strength, Knowledge may not be applied.Alexander the Great
For my own part, I would rather excel knowledge of the highest secrets of philosophy than in arms.Alexander the Great
I would rather live a short life of glory than a long one of obscurity.Alexander the Great
Let us conduct ourselves so that all men wish to be our friends and all fear to be our enemies.Alexander the Great
When my casket is being carried to the grave, leave my hands hanging outside. For empty-handed, I came into this world and empty-handed, I shall go! My whole life has been a hallow waste, a futile exercise, for no one at death can take anything with them!Alexander the Great
The end and object of conquest is to avoid doing the same thing as the conquered.Alexander the Great
There are so many worlds, and I have not yet conquered even oneAlexander the Great
As for a limit to one’s labors, I, for one, do not recognize any for a high-minded man, except that the labors themselves should lead to noble accomplishments.Alexander the Great
For my part, I think that to a man of spirit there is no other aim and end of his labours except the labours themselves.Alexander the Great
Remember, upon the conduct of each depends the fate of all.Alexander the Great
