Well I thought it would be a interesting question:

1)What person do you admire, the most? :flowers:
Your dad, mom, lady-gaga, bill-gates....the list goes on and on

2)And please tell us WHY you admire that ONE person....? :thumbsup:

I admire:
Jesus Christ

Why?
Never in the world has there been so much stir about a man. He even is what splits time in half B.C. A.C.
He has changed so much bad people into good, and his teachings are strong till this day. Its one of the many teachings that make this world a better place.

I think he will be one of the most influential men off all time

I certainly Nominate this Man as equal to a Modern day Jesus.

His gains in not only Peace in his Area, but also in World Peace make him what he really is, a Great Man.

His Name is Nelson Mandela.

His latest accomplishments include this wonderful thing, read up on it?

That is one Magical Man.

Of all the human beings who have lived...I think it's impossible to say that one is more admirable than any of the others. And...there are plenty who demonstrated qualities which any thinking human being...would have judge as "admirable".

Especially so when one considers the fact that many of those who have contributed most to what we know as "life" today...underwent tests of moral, emotional, and physical courage...all varying with the conditions of her/his existence.

I admire many persons for varying reasons...they each belong on a distinct pedestal (IMO) which does not reflect any sort of tier structure.

A "hero" is a "hero", no such concept as "more heroic", IMO.

We will never know who it was, or where it was done, but that inventive soul who found out that if you bang together the correct two rocks just right you will have fire.

To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

What about the person who invented the wheel.

I really admire that person..

I realize it may have been a complete act of laziness that resulted in that modern marvel, but what the hay.

My brother used to call me lazy because I would always find an easier way to do something.

Laziness to develop the wheel? No. Whoever it was that came up with that concept spent his, or her, free time thinking of othe ways to make their daily existence more tolerable.

Probably the person I most admire is Ghandi. As peaceful and influential a person as has ever exhisted in "modern" times.

I admire my younger son, at least part of the time. :thumbsup: I was told he wouldn't live, but he lived. He was told he couldn't walk, but he walks and complains that he can't dance. In spite of a lot of aggravation, he has grown up with a brilliant sense of humour and the ability to enjoy life. A valuable commodity.

The person I most admire is Siddhartha Gautama, also known as Buddha Gautama. Although I'm not Buddhism, I actually and sincerely admire him because of his great knowledge, wisdom and what he did.


I realize that he was just a human being, not a super human being. But his knowledge and wisdom were beyond the time and space. His teachings are still modern and useful for many people as the excellent

ways to the peaceful situation, mentally and physically.


Before became the Buddha, the little prince Siddhartha left a lot of physical worth as well as palace, the chance to be a leader (king), his wife and his son. The main point is that he dared to rebel against

the Influence of ancient philosophies which were based on the concepts or beliefs upon the Creation and the Creator.


He was the pioneer of Non-theism. He was the first Free Thinker all over the word and he gave us the moral and physical courage, to be a real human being.


When he became a Buddha, he shared his knowledge and speech by sacrificing the whole life. His teaching upgraded the many people's opinion concerned with "life and death". Simply to say, he gave people the

courage to live and to die as the real human beings, without any influence of God or creator. After passing through about 2,500 years, we could find something useful from his teachings and his

philosophy.
