A Tale To Tell & Remember

I'm very much inspired by the words of Thomas L. Friedman in his book "The World Is Flat" which renders about the influence of bloggers in this new age. I want to keep the highest integrity and honesty in posting my words to the world. This blog act as a testimony to my alacrity of sharing information with the borderless world. Hope we can share a high regards of veracity and chivalry with this blog because that's why it is here. So help me God!

Impasse

15th August 2008 - I was reading a book written by Dr. Henry Kissinger on Diplomacy. I found a startling comparison between past leaders of Europe [Napoleon III and Otto Von Bismarck] which stated by Dr. Kissinger on leadership.

I quote the book:-

"Napoleon's [III] tragedy was that his ambitions surpassed his capacities; Bismarck's tragedy was that his capacities exceeded his society's ability to absorb them. The legacy Napoleon left France was strategic paralysis; the legacy Bismarck left Germany was inassimilable greatness."

I guess we could learn a lot from that statement.
