Julius Caesar was 32 years old and as he looked at a statue of Alexander the Great, he began to cry.
But why was this 32-year-old Caesar crying?
@KnowledgeArchiv Alexander conquered the world. His teacher was Aristotle who was taught by Plato who was taught by Socrates. He once burned his carriage before his entire army before demanding they burn theirs so they could travel faster. Brilliant LEADER. I’d cry too!
@modernistperiod Yeah he was other worldly
@modernistperiod @KnowledgeArchiv Brilliant leader... Who ultimately lost his way. Which is more important in the grand scheme of things. Moral of the story: never forget where you came from and who helped you get there.
@AngeloD629 @KnowledgeArchiv The primary reason Alexander was the most successful conquerer of his age was that he was able to feed his massive army through supply chain planning. Food was the biggest obstacle in the ancient world for everyone, especially large armies. Prosaic but true.
