Society:Learning from Past Presidents

  10 points 0 viewers scored

The lecturer in this programe have spent a lifetime looking into the lives of presidents who are no longer alive. Let's look back on the lives of two of the presidents - Abraham Lincoln and Lyndon Johnson. As for that first sphere of work, what Abraham Lincoln's life suggests is that fierce ambition is a good thing. He had a huge ambition. But it wasn't simply for office or power or celebrity or fame - what it was for was to accomplish something worthy enough in life so that he could make the world a little better place for his having lived in it. Bisides the president's work, the lecturer also talked about their love and entertainment. Come with me to enjoy it in the speech.
