  AN ESSAY ON GIANTS OF MANKIND
Ilija Kajtez
  DOI: 10.2298/AOO1004149K
  Abstract:
  Great people are relentless in creation on the planet, exalted magicians of words, thoughts and deeds. An extraordinary man of excellence can bring immeasurable good to his race, faith, country or civilization. We should not forget that the man is a building block of creation and that sometimes he is not aware of how much of his creative zeal and fruitful energy is hidden in his spiritual flight and profound thoughts. Fortunately, the giants of the world (Aristotle, Hegel, Heidegger, Dostoevsky and Shakespeare) had timely recognized their gift and dedicated their valuable life to fertilize it. Nothing that God has given to the Man is without a reason. Nothing is given with the bad intention that gifts of spirit should die, unfertilized, overlaid and empty, when the person physically leaves this world. That exceptional value of the One is meant to be passed as the most precious gift on to new generations open to fruitful new knowledge. The Serbian race throughout its eventful and turbulent history and painful existence has delivered rich gifts of beauty, spirit, wisdom and struggle for freedom to the world heritage. Studenica is the place where St. Simeon Mirotoeivi (the one who spreads peace) laid foundations of our state, and Saint Sava, the first light and dawn among the Serbs, christened our race for ever.
