David Livingstone — Scottish Explorer born on March 19, 1813, died on May 01, 1873

David Livingstone was a Scottish Congregationalist pioneer medical missionary with the London Missionary Society and an explorer in Africa. His meeting with H. M. Stanley on 10 November 1871 gave rise to the popular quotation "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" Livingstone was one of the most popular national heroes of the late 19th century in Victorian Britain, and he had a mythical status which operated on a number of interconnected levels: Protestant missionary martyr, working-class "rags to riches" inspirational story, scientific investigator and explorer, imperial reformer, anti-slavery crusader, and advocate of commercial empire. His fame as an explorer helped drive forward the obsession with discovering the sources of the River Nile that formed the culmination of the classic period of European geographical discovery and colonial penetration of the African continent...

I determined never to stop until I had come to the end and achieved my purpose.
I am prepared to go anywhere, provided it be forward.
I will go anywhere, provided it is forward.
If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don't want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.
I will place no value on anything I have or may possess except in relation to the kingdom of Christ.
