About Enemies


I’d like to share with you some quotes regarding how to deal with enemies:

-Frank Sinatra: Alcohol may be man’s worst enemy, but the bible says love your enemy.

-Mahatma Gandhi: Whenever you are confronted with an opponent, conquer him with love.

-J.F. Kennedy: Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.

-Napoleon: Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.

-Oscar Wilde: Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.

-Franklin D. Roosevelt: I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made.

-Paul Newman: A man with no enemies is a man with no character.

Now, I noticed that thanks to their enemies the above mentioned men made us quoting them. It is not so bad having some enemies in life, and it is not really good having everyone as a friend. The hard question is how to know when an enemy could become a friend and a friend an enemy.

LOUIS PASTEUR and JOSEPH MEISTER



                                             
 The Second World War started in 1939. Rapidly the Nazi invaded France and arrived in Paris. The story goes that, in June1940, they ordered Joseph Meister to open Pasteur’s tomb in order to examine it.

Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) is considered the most important scientist in medical research for the nineteenth century with his process of ‘pasteurisation’ and his development of a vaccine against rabies. In 1885 using his rabies vaccine he successfully saved the life of a title boy called Joseph Meister. When Pasteur died in 1895 he was buried inside the Pasteur Institute, in Paris. And almost a half-century later Joseph Meister happened to became a caretaker at the Pasteur Institute.
According to a legend well known in France, when the Nazi came to Pasteur Institute,  Joseph Meister refused to comply with the violation by killing himself. Whether this is the truth or just a legend, the suicide of Joseph Meister happened in June 1940 is certain. Anyway he is the first man who got the rabies vaccine from Louis Pasteur./.

 A CENTURY AGO

 A CENTURY AGO: A WORLD WAR BEGINS IN EUROPE July 28, 1914
I n 1913 , until Spring of 1914, the World was peaceful and life very nice in Europe. 

Raymond PoincarĂ© took office as president of France. 

In China, Dr. Sun Yat-sen was president of the Republic of China which he founded in 1912 after the overthrow of the Qing dynasty.

Rabindranath Tagore won Nobel Prize in Literature; Henri La Fontaine in Peace; Charles Robert Richet in Medecine, Alfred Werner in Chemistry; Heike Kamerlingh Onnes in Physics.

In America luxury motorcars priced from $2,500 to $7,500 with Packard, Pierce Arrow, Peerless, and Cadillac was the leading make in the range of $1,500 to $2,500. Henry Ford offered workers a minimum wage of $5 per day. Charlie Chaplin, 24, signed a contract for $150 per week in New York with the movie maker Mack Sennett. 

In New York, the 60-story Woolworth, the world’s tallest habitable building at that time, opens its doors for business in April 1913.

July 28th, 1914 First World War begins.
Germany declares war on Russia August 1 and on France August 3, then the war quickly widens. Japan declares war on Germany August 23. From August 14 to August 25 the Battle of the Frontiers costs 250,000 lives.

In the end of this War, the percentage of men who died is 57% of 65 million of men mobilized to fight, and the number of Civilian casualties is close to 9 million. The total War Cost altogether is over 186 billion dollars.

Knowing this, what conclusion would we draw when we see all these tensions surrounding the World today? 

Possibly, a way to help these belligerent guys to make peace is to let them know that their salaries will be cut off  50% when they go to war :-)
