Genghis Khan quotes

Without the vision of a goal, a man cannot manage his own life, much less the lives of others.

Genghis Khan









Genghis Khan (11621227), born Temujin, was the founder and Great Khan (emperor) of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his demise. Beyond his military accomplishments, Genghis Khan also advanced the Mongol Empire in other ways. He decreed the adoption of the Uyghur script as the Mongol Empire's writing system.

Genghis Khan also felt that education was important and scholars were to be treated with dignity and respect. They were encouraged to teach others whatever they wished.

He also promoted religious tolerance in the Mongol Empire, and created a unified empire from the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia. Present-day Mongolians regard him as the founding father of Mongolia.

Great Yasa of Genghis Khan

"If the great, the military leaders and the leaders of the many descendants of the ruler who will be born in the future, should not adhere strictly to the Yasa, then the power of the state will be shattered and come to an end, no matter how they then seek Genghis Khan, they shall not find him."

~ Genghis Khan
