    How do you define the term "greatness"? What people come to mind when you hear this term?

      I'm not catholic, but I still think Mother Teresa was one of the greatest people of our time.

      Often, when I hear that term associated to any particular person, it usually means they have made an effort, which is also usually the distinguishing factor between being great or not. smile

      Paul Newman was a great person. Not only did he follow his dreams, he valued giving back to help others. He also valued his marriage.

      Agree kephrira

      I think you are the greatest person in the world, (key words), towards yourself.

      I am the greatest person in the world for me.

      That's why everyone can be God rather than fighting who has the best one and only God. I don't even have a one and only girlfriend, just worship them one at a time and move on to the next.

    True greatness stems from being true to one's own decency.

    Greatness for me would be he that suffered then died on the cross so that mankind would not vanish forever.
