Quote [44] – Internationals

“I am a citizen, not of Athens, nor of Greece, but the whole world. The world is my parish” – Socrates Make gentle the life of the world
“If you get my message of greeting from all this distance, be thankful that ours is the first age in history to bring about friendly and understanding intercourse between people of different countries; in former times nations passed their lives in mutual ignorance, and in fact hated or feared on another. May the spirit of brotherly understanding gain ground more and more among them. With this in mind I, an old man, greet you Japanese schoolchildren from afar and hope that your generation may some day put mine to shame” The world as I see it
