William Shakespeare is a man whom we repeat every day, quoting and not even suspecting that it was he who invented this phrase or expression. It is amazing, remember how often you say something like this: “not all is gold that glitters”, “pitiful sight”, “food of the gods”, “all is well that ends well”. All this is Shakespeare. And of course, the most famous phrase of the maestro: “to be or not to be”. Egil Aarvik, a representative of the Nobel Prize Committee, once said that Shakespeare would be the only person who could claim to receive the Nobel Prize more than once.
Speaking about the work of Shakespeare, we can almost say nothing about him. About his life, about him, as a man. We only know that he was a simple actor, and then suddenly he became the greatest playwright. This gives rise to an incredible amount of rumors and whether Shakespeare was Shakespeare.
Who is Adolf Hitler everyone knows. We all know that this man is the root cause of the Second World War. He provoked the war for two main reasons, so to speak. First: to become the most powerful man on Earth and in history, and rule the world. The second reason: to generate as much pain as possible, against all those whom he personally considered guilty of the fact that Germany fell into an abusive and humiliating situation after the First World War.
Hitler was a great orator, and he knew that his fellow countrymen wanted to hear, and he knew that they felt the same feelings towards Germany’s offenders as he did. Consequently, it was absolutely easy to raise people to “great” accomplishments and conquests.
The Second World War was the worst, bloodiest war in the history of mankind. She led to the greatest human losses. The estimated number of victims of World War II is 71 million. And Hitler is to blame for this. And during the war, he knew about it. He knew that all these victims were his victims, and he was glad of it. He was proud of it. Today, Hitler in the hearts and minds of people is on the same list with the “Devil” and “Satan.”

It may surprise you, but most of the people who ask for the Buddha’s name on Google are not Buddhists. In the Western Hemisphere and throughout Europe, Buddhism is not as widely spread as in the Eastern part – Nepal and India. It is known that Buddha was a mortal man who attained nirvana and spiritual awakening at the age of 35. To achieve nirvana and spiritual knowledge, the Buddha sat in meditation for 49 days under a tree, until he reached the knowledge of what needs to be done in order to end human suffering. Having learned the truth, the Buddha carried his teachings to people, so that all those who work could free themselves from the torment in their lives. This path is called the Noble Eightfold Path, which consists of: the right view, the right intention, the right concentration, the right speech, the right actions, the right way of life, the right efforts and the right attentiveness. According to the Buddha’s teachings, if you follow these simple rules, you can become a truly happy person who does not depend on anything.
