Review by: Edward E. Rochon on Aug. 02, 2016 :
Alexander made quite a name for himself in history. Such men are falling stars, crashing to earth to their destruction and detriment of mankind. If their impact is great, men take note. Drunk with wine, drunk with vainglory, drunk with self-deception, he makes a great scene, swelling the drama. The only thing that matters to man and society is to control and ennoble what goes on between the tip of the head and the fingertips of the outstretched hands of each man. Though surrounded by a million comrades, when the two enemy soldiers come at you, and all your comrades are dead, wounded or dealing with their own battles, it is your own hands and eyes and skills that will save you. Earthly success in the eyes of men is vanity. All good things come down from above. We should seek those things and not come falling back to earth as a shooting star. A man may rise to accomplishment; he should continue on his way and not be turned by applause that quite often turns to jeers the next year. Greatness is an ever receding star. Better to be great and unknown, than to be thought great and petty for all that. I do not agree with the tenor your work. It was of interest to read. Three stars.
