“There is nothing impossible to him who will try.” (Alexander The Great) If anything, this quote from Alexander perfectly sums up his life. Defying the impossible was simply something the leader of one of the greatest reigns in our world 's history was bound to do. Although born in Greece in 356 BC, he comes from the state of Macedonia just north of Greece.
