History

Sometimes I wonder if History is worth reading. Most of the times we remember emperors, murderers, politicians, and other people who did little for humanity and a lot for their themselves.

We forget about great inventors like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Alexander Graham Bell, and other enthusiasts who completely changed our world for the better. Imagine going to work on a horse, walking in the night with a candle, having to wait for weeks or months to hear from a friend in a distant city…

There are also other people who make this world a better place with their talents and who sometimes we forget: musicians, architects, scientists, teachers, writers, doctors… These are the people worth remembering, people who make your life worth it.

Sometimes we should forget about our books, ignore the overrated figures, and use our own criteria… maybe we can find a big inspiration in the person right next to us!
