Like the title reads: If you could sit and chat with one person in history, who would it be, whats the first question you would ask, and why did you choose that person?
It would be Johannes Brahms, and my question would be...
"Will you marry me?"
Ha! that is great! i hope he would say yes.
On another note.. I am from SFL too
better ask him during his early years, or else you would end up @#%@ Santa Claus....
Ryan Deiss You didn't say he couldn't be alive which Ryan very much is.
First question, Will my internet business survive the next few years?
Why, watching his video's have taught me more than anyone else on the web about how to succeed and all this in only a few hours. I would love to talk to him in person.
The Apostle Peter.
I'd ask him to to share his personal story, in person, of how he got forgiveness for denying Jesus the Christ and went on to become a total follower of His. If more sinners could grasp that concept of repentance and forgiveness, their lives would be changed so awesomely! And his timidity of heart at first is similar to my own experiences...
My first question to him would be, 'Of the many teachings you have taught your students, which one do you treasure most?
He is a remarkable figure whose teachings can apply to our lives now, which makes me think he was thousands of years ahead of his time. Now that is incredible.
C.G. Jung, because his ideas have clarified so much and brought much inspiration.
I would probably be so awestruck, I would not be able to get out a single word!
Lincoln for me, and I'd tell him the play that night really stinks. He should insted take his wife out for a nice dinner.
Richard III - I want to know who dunnit! Did he really murder his nephews?
Jesus Christ, I'd love to know what HE thinks of all these denominations from HIS one church concept.
Lincoln, kind of an idol of mine, subject of one of my hubs. He fought depression his whole life and still accomplished so much, lived through one of the darkest times in America's history, plus kept a sense of humor in spite of it all. I would ask him how he kept a positive outlook when his life was so difficult.
I'd visit me upon graduating from college, and I'd ask:
"What is it that you REALLY want out of life?"
Guillaume Dufay, one of the three founders of modern Western harmony (along with John Dunstaple and Gille Binchois).
I'd ask if Antoine Busnois really wrote L'Homme Armé, and listen to Dufay conduct one of his own three-voiced chansons. Then I'd come back and publish a paper about late Medieval performance practice and be famous!
Why just ONE? I'd like to have Oscar Wilde and Helene Hanff ("84 Charing Cross Road") in the same room! I tend to clam up in the presence of celebs, so I'd let Ms. Hanff grill Wilde.
If it doesn't have to be a FAMOUS person from history, then my choice would be my great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Camp Langley, whose ancestry remains a total mystery.

How far does someone have to push you before you no longer forgive them?Forgiveness is tough. What is the limit of forgiveness. Is forgiving someone else even possible?

Could you forgive a friend if they stole from you?

No, this isn't a 'bash the believers' thread, nor do I wish to see it become as such. Instead, I have an earnest question I want answered, and I'm afraid non-believers aren't qualified to answer this one, for reasons that will be become readily apparent as soon as I ask the question.Given all of...
