But this was not #Alexander. All his life he fought to free himself from fear. By this and this alone he was made free; The freest man I've ever known. His tragedy was one of increasing loneliness and impatience for those who could not understand. And if his desire to reconcile Greek and barbarian... what, failure? His failure towers the world of successes. I've lived. I've lived long life Cadmos but the glory and the memory of man will always belong to the fathers who followed their great vision and the greatest of these is the one they now call "Magnos Alexandros."The greatest Alexander of them all.
