Istanbul – A single glance!

If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul.
Alphonse de Lamartine

Alphonse de Lamartine was a French writer, poet and politician who was born during the French Revolution (1790) and lived to become a key player in the founding of the Second Republic of France (1848).  A pacifist and political idealist, his efforts led to the abolishment of slavery and the death penalty, the enshrinement of the right to work, and the short-lived national workshop programs. A life well lived!
