On this day....

In 1715 François Fénelon, Catholic theologian and author, died. He wrote Spiritual Progress and Maxims of the Saints. He said, “All wars are civil wars, because all men are brothers.” More of his quotes are here.

In 1943 Nikola Tesla, the great inventor and eccentric, died. PBS has aired a program devoted to him. The Tesla Museum is in Serbia.
