Who Personifies an Idea for You..?

November 17, 2013

Personify – definition: 1. to represent a thing or idea in the form of a person; 2. to be an embodiment or incarnation of an idea; to typify


There are many people throughout history who have made an impact on the global consciousness. I am sure you can name some more but these were the ones that came to my mind. The common thread is kindness and respect for those around us, whether in our immediate surroundings or further away.

Who did you think of?

Martin Luther King – I have a dream today.

Mahatma Ghandi – Where there is life there is love

John F Kenndey – Let us never negotiate out of fear but let us never fear to negotiate.

Charles Darwin – It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.

Galileo Galilei – Where the senses fail us, reason must step in.

Dalai Lama – My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.

George Orwell – In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

Princess Diana – Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
