Words of Wisdom—Genghis Khan

Share Button

Genghis Khan (1162 – August 25, 1227) is considered to be one of the greatest conquerors ever. He founded the Mongol Empire, which eventually became the largest contiguous kingdom in the world. Under his rule of religious tolerance, all were free to practice the religion of their choice. He was also instrumental in expanding global trade and communication through the success of the Silk Road.

Below we list some words of wisdom from Genghis Khan.

“A leader can never be happy until his people are happy.”

“I will rule them by fixed laws so that rest and happiness shall prevail in the world.”

“Say ye unto the Khwarizmi that I am the sovereign of the sunrise, and he is the sovereign of the sunset. Let there be between us a firm treaty of friendship, amity, and peace, and let traders and caravans on both sides come and go.”

“When it was wet, we bore the wet together, when it was cold, we bore the cold together.”

“The strength of a wall is neither greater nor less than the courage of the men who defend it.”

“Not even a mighty warrior can break a frail arrow when it is multiplied and supported by its fellows. As long as you brothers support one another and render assistance to one another, your enemies can never gain the victory over you. But if you fall away from each other your enemy can break you like frail arrows, one at a time.”

“Those who were adept and brave fellows I have made military commanders. Those who were quick and nimble I have made herders of horses. Those who were not adept I have given a small whip and sent to be shepherds.”

“Even when a friend does something you do not like, he continues to be your friend.”

“If unable to abstain from drinking, a man may get drunk three times a month; if he does it more than three times he is culpable; if he gets drunk twice a month it is better; if once a month, this is still more laudable; and if one does not drink at all what can be better? But where can I find such a man? If such a man were found he would be worthy of the highest esteem.”

“I hate luxury. I exercise moderation…It will be easy to forget your vision and purpose one you have fine clothes, fast horses and beautiful women. In which case, you will be no better than a slave, and you will surely lose everything.”

“I am from the Barbaric North. I wear the same clothing and eat the same food as the cowherds and horse-herders. We make the same sacrifices and we share our riches.”

“As my calling is high, the obligations incumbent upon me are also heavy; and I fear that in my ruling there may be something wanting.”

“An action committed in anger is an action doomed to failure.”

“Just as God gave different fingers to the hand, so has He given different ways to men.”

“Perhaps my children will live in stone houses and walled towns – Not I.”

“The merit in action lies in finishing it to the end.”

“There is no good in anything until it is finished.”
