12 Harriet Tubman Quotes to Help You Find the Leader Within

Harriet Tubman was a leading abolitionist who went on to become the most famous conductor of the Underground Railroad — a network of secret routes and safe houses destined to help those enslaved during the 19th century. The routes led to free states but later on, as the Fugitive Slave Law was adopted, slaves could be captured and returned to their masters. So Harriet Tubman changed the route to Canada, which prohibited slavery categorically, leading hundreds of slaves to freedom, using this route. Her efforts, ingenuity, and determination later earned her the “Moses” moniker, among others. Born in a family of slaves, she was beaten, sold and constantly ill due to poor conditions and endless struggles; yet Tubman knew that she was destined for something bigger, which gave her the determination to escape — and take others with her. By being a great leader and helping so many, she achieved greatness and restored faith among enslaved people. During the Civil War, Tubman also worked as a spy, working alongside the Union Army. Harriet became a highly respected figure in history and an American icon. Here are 12 Harriet Tubman quotes to help you find the leader within. Don’t ever stop. […]

While being president, Lincoln led his people through the Civil War, the costliest war in the history of the U.S., and made major decisions on the Union war strategy. He fought for equal rights, liberty, and democracy. Those hard and bloody times led to the abolition of slavery and made the economy flourish. Switching to merrier times, Abraham Lincoln was also the one to establish Thanksgiving as a national holiday. That big turkey wouldn’t have had the same appeal without Thanksgiving, would it?

25 Pope John Paul II Quotes to Make You Fight for What You Believe In

Pope John Paul II (18 May 1920 – 2 April 2005) was head of the Catholic Church for 27 years (between 1978 and 2005), being the second-longest serving Pope in modern history after Pope Pius IX. Karol Józef Wojtyła, by his real name, is often referred to as Saint John Paul the Great by many Catholics. He earned this title not just by being a religious figure, but by significantly improving the Catholic Church’s relations with the Orthodox Church, Islam, Judaism and the Anglican Communion. His dream was to create a religious alliance between all denominations. Pope John Paul II was involved in preventing Catholic sex abuse stating that “there is no place in the priesthood and religious life for those who would harm the young.” He supported the use of artificial contraception, the ordination of women, and also fought against organized crime. Of course, he was highly criticized by many bishops and traditionalists for being too unconventional and too direct, but he never stopped fighting for what he believed in. So here are 25 Pope John Paul II quotes to make you stand up and fight for what is right. The future starts today, not tomorrow. Do not be […]

Bill Gates (William Henry Gates III) was born October 28, 1955. The American business man co-founded the Microsoft Corporation alongside former classmate Paul Allen.

Ever wondered where all that drive to be #1 comes from? Well, Gates’ parents always encouraged competition by means of rewards and penalties and taught him about sharing success. Gates was so absorbed by operating systems that he got banned from school for being caught exploiting bugs, then he decided to drop out of Harvard to start his own business. He thought that if this would prove to be a bad idea, he could always go back to school. He obviously nailed it! One of the world’s top philanthropists, Bill Gates is as generous and giving as he is wealthy and successful. Gates is investing a big part of his fortune in making the world a better place for the poor. He saved over 5 million lives by bringing vaccines and improving children healthcare; throughout his life, he donated half of his […]
