My first memo i want devote to the theme, that i guess very interesting: what determines a person's contribution to the development of social relations, science,art and culture, the economy.
In my opinion: there was many people, who made World History in various directions due to their personal characteristics and first of all owing to: willpower, lust for life and as result awesome performance, and, I'm sure, to the desire to explore new horizons.
And if you'd ask me about five great person in the World History, I'll answer, there were: Napoleon Bonaparte, Leonardo da Vinci, Ruald Amundsen, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and Irena Sendler.
And what is your opinion of this matter?
Cleiziane, I agree with you, they are, certainly, great persons.
I would add a few names that made history because of his personality and determination: Ernest Henry Shackleton, Irmã Dulce (Maria Rita de Sousa Brito Lopes Pontes), Bob Marley and Alberto Santos Dumont.
