Mother Teresa of India, awarded Nobel Peace Prize  1979

In 1979, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize “for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress, which also constitutes a threat to peace.” She didn’t attend the ceremonial banquet, but asked that the $192,000 fund be given to the poor.
http://www.biographyonline.net/nobelprize/mother_teresa.html

   “It is not how much we do,
   but how much love we put in the doing.
   It is not how much we give,
   but how much love we put in the giving.”

– Mother Teresa

Reading that link, Whiskers, it tells of five other 'notable' happenings in history on this day (19th October) - all of which are far more 'notable' and readable (for me anyway) than that dumb stuntman craving attention and 'allegedly' starving himself inside a box!

What d'you reckon folks - Which is the most interesting, history-making event out of all six ?

Stories From 19 Oct

1989: Guildford Four released after 15 years

2004: British aid worker kidnapped in Iraq

1987: Shares plunge after Wall Street crash

1954: 'Metal fatigue' caused Comet crashes

1977: Kidnapped German found dead

I like David Blaine KK.   I agree all the other things are probably more newsworthy but my source only lists one thing for each day and they must be a David Blaine fan like me. Smile

1862

Alice in Wonderland manuscript is sent as a Christmas present



On this day in 1862, Oxford mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson sends a handwritten manuscript called Alice’s Adventures Under Ground to 10-year-old Alice Liddell.

The 30-year-old Dodgson, better known by his nom de plume Lewis Carroll, made up the story one day on a picnic with young Alice and her two sisters, the children of one of Dodgson’s colleagues. Dodgson, the son of a country parson, had been brilliant at both mathematics and wordplay since childhood, when he enjoyed making up games.

However, he suffered from a severe stammer, except when he spoke with children. He had many young friends who enjoyed his fantastic stories: The Liddell children thought his tale of a girl who falls down a rabbit hole was one of his best efforts, and Alice insisted he write it down.

During a visit to the Liddells, English novelist Henry Kingsley happened to notice the manuscript. After reading it, he suggested to Mrs. Liddell that it be published. Dodgson published the book at his own expense, under the name Lewis Carroll, in 1865. The story is one of the earliest children’s books written simply to amuse children, not to teach them. The book’s sequel, Through the Looking Glass, was published in 1871. Dodgson’s other works, including a poetry collection called Phantasmagoria and Other Poems, and another children’s book, Sylvia and Bruno, did not gain the same enduring popularity as the Alice books. Dodgson died in 1898.

Wow!  Only just found this out.  when you make a copy and paste with Switch Editor Mode pressed it copies everything just as it is without having to do anything else, bold, large headings, italics, images etc.  This is great!  woohoo
