    I'm from Argentina, and I am wondering how two genius like Diego and Ayrton Senna (F1) were so big that, as you say, you can see some ... different touch. Now, you can also see the importance of education and wealth. While Maradona's personal life was a disaster, Ayrton's personal life was full of greatness too. Senna was a strong believer of god, he was from a rich family from Brazil and many times he said that at some point he felt he was out of himself and driving in Monaco was as easy as going through a light tunnel. I don't believe in god, what I do believe is that when you reach such a level of perfection you get the full potential of your energy and senses, we are all humans however not everyone is determined to reach and pass its own potential.

      @Carlos Gustavo Merolla Not only in his country, F1 is less popular than football in 90% of the planet (and maybe more). That does not mean that Senna was not spectacular or that it was not at the same level in his discipline

      @Priscilla Raj It does not change my point.... Both of them where .... outstanding, if F1 is less popular in your country that's another story. People who understand F1 know that Senna was almost a super human, the same as Maradona. Ask a Japanese about Senna... My point is how education helps people to have such an impact without doing what Maradona has done outside the football field.

      I can't just agree with you here. Maradona's name has gone to the farthest corner of earth. We in Bangladesh grew up with Maradona on our lips. But Sena was merely known to the professional circle and fans, which was big but never comparable to Maradona's. The whole earth for at least two generations have put itself on the head of this great Argentine lion. He carried the burden and yes, sometimes it felt too too heavy on him that he just drifted away.

    There's something special in him special that clearly goes beyond the football. Champion among normal people, brave among non brave people, paladin of poors against rich people, the weakest and the strongest ever at same time, coherent until his end in good and in bad. I hope to meet him in my next life

    What a beautiful tribute to an amazing individual. A very very fitting tribute. I remember watching the final of Mexico 86 in Italy and he had something that transcended boundaries. He influenced me to learn and speak the Spanish language from being a child. He impacted people in the biggest and smallest of ways, but nevertheless he impacted on people. A true true great and I for one will miss him tremendously. His personality, his energy, his passion, his rage, and his love. An absolute tragedy to go so soon, but I think his work was done on this earth. I hope he now finds peace, and gets the help he needs in the arms of God, and I hope he lives every single day from now on as he did that day back in 86. And he died CLEAN!! That is a testament in itself!! Everyone is human and everyone makes mistakes. El pago un precio muy alto por todos sus errores, pero..al fin del dia...LA PELOTA NO SE MANCHA!! Y murio LIMPIO, y finalmente esta liberado de todas los adicciones. Estoy segura q va a dar dos dedos a la gente q le hacian mal, y la gentuza q siempre queria ver lo peor de el. Ahora es la hora pa recordar lo MEJOR. QEPD Diego ❤❤

    You ask why it matters: mnmore.info/bin/video/mIbW3sKad6jOdNI So, a famous football comentator die and then Diego walks through the street to arrive to his funeral... There were conflictiv times, like allways, and in Argentina the economic troubles and crisis in the last 80s produce inflation, so unemployment, and cuts to the senior people, the old retired workers. Like everywhere. The well known comentator dies alone with no money because that... So Maradona tires to get there and in his way, people try to touch him like a god, and all this stuff, and some old people tell him to support seniors... But someone stole his hat... and a confusión appears. He tires to find the hat asking who stole to him, bit nothing happends... He is angry ( because allways people takes things from him, he allways males presents to everyone, but this time he was stolen. and that hat was a personal gift... So someone tells 'why are u get mad Maradona?? That s just a hat, make it for the seniors...' So he really get mad and punch with his head to that Man ( he realized that one was the thief ..). Later that, he told one of his mate: 'Coco, didn't you told me it was only 2 blocks..??? Told you we better arrive with car... Before that and interview explaining what happends, telling he is supporting to death to argentinian seniors, and finally arrives to the funeral. In just a few meters he fought for his personal hat, he fight por the limits le his public life, he fight with a no respect guy, literally, fight for seniors people, and fight for a forgotten one... That s why is important. Who didn t betray is not forgotten. RIP Diego.

    He had the playing style of messi and zidane in him. But he was a warrior and leader and fearless on the pitch. He Used to get fouled 20 times a game. Carried Argentina and napoli on his back.came back from a broken ankle ankle and won the world cup while haveing addictions. That is not easy respect to the best ever to play the game.

    lo que lo hizo mas grande no solo fue su juego, sino que de la pobreza absoluta paso a ternerlo todo. Pero en ese pase nunca perdió la humildad, ni olvido sus orígenes, y siempre estuvo del lado de los mas necesitados. Regalo esperanza y eso es lo que nunca le van a perdonar.-

    Celibacy, fasting , meditation, distilled water and fruitarian diet. The Edenic parable deals with the generative centres on the physical plane. To consume the essence of life in carnal generation leads to a general deterioration of the body. The wages of sin is death. For to be carnally minded is death. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God ( Rom 6:23;8:6,7) Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body: but he that committeth fornication, sinneth against his own body. It is good for a man not to touch a women (1 Cor .6:18, 7:1) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin: for his seed remaineth in him and cannot sin, because he is born of God. There is a sin unto death. (1 John 3:9, 5:16) It can not be too emphatically stated that the carnal generative function exists only in the psychical and physical realms. The abuse of this function is the most terrible of all crimes against the body and the "unpardonable sin" the "sin unto death". It was held by the Ancient Masters that only celibates, who conserve the bodies vital essence and preserve the purity of the mind and body and thereby regain the complete innocence of "little children" ( Mat. 18:3, 19:14) can rise to the higher plane, " the kingdom of heaven" ( Mat.22:30) This vital subject is dealt with in the Edenic parable where man is told that in the day that he eats of the Tree of Life, dying he shall die ( Gen 2:17) "AWAKEN THE WORLD WITHIN" by HILTON HOTEMA 1962 Raise the fire within , please read this book and all 50 books by Hilton hotema
