One is always the most interesting in the beginning.
That is why one is most happy as a child.
A historical person can say to another person that this is the beginning but when does that
A soldier is a soldier in one time but a shoemaker in another. Hopefully he is first a
shoemaker then a soldier then he is killed in action. No hopefully he is a soldier then
killed in action then makes it and becomes a shoemaker.
All countries are important just not at the same time.
France used to be important but is it important now. No.
