Babur
I have not written all this to complain: I have simply written the truth. I do not intend by what I have written to compliment myself: I have simply set down exactly what happened. Since I have made it a point in this history to write the truth of every matter and to set down no more than the reality of every event, as a consequence I have reported every good and evil I have seen of father and brother and set down the actuality of every fault and virtue of relative and stranger. May the reader excuse me; may the listener take me not to task.
Babur quotes
If you desire to rule and conquer, you don't just fold your hands when things go wrong, you act.
Babur
My own soul is my most faithful friend. My own heart, my truest confidant.
