I would have to agree. His avatar is also great as is the intoxicant he has just consumed (possibly).

These are surely signs of greatness, but I would dispute the statement that Akbar was great in the first post. He was a tyrannical monarch like all of them.

Even Dritarashtra did not agree that Akbar is great as you can see in the video below. (Sorry there's no translation).

Well, I don't think I agree with the post fully or I perhaps I'm confused, and the Shakespeare's line just added to my confusion as it seems to be contradicting the line immediately before it. So I take the post as incoherent musing, which is okay.

And speaking of greatness, maybe you should read some JK. Greatness is anonymity. | Daily Quotes Archive - J. Krishnamurti Online

You have the answer to your question, but maybe you are unable to see it. From now on, put all your efforts into being ordinary so that you may come across great challenges, and then overcome them!
