We talk about the Greek general and ruler, Alexander the Great. He himself certainly thought he was great. According to tradition, he wept because he had no more worlds to conquer. He wasn't right about that. Alexander died at the age of 32. What killed him? It is believed to have been malaria caused by the bite of the small mosquito. Sometimes small things can destroy what we think of as great.
