Comments on: "Herodotus Quotes: Soft men tend to be born from soft countries."
Herodotus was born in Halicarnassus, Bodrum, Turkey. He was a Greek historian. He is widely referred to as "The Father of History"; he was the first historian known to have broken from Homeric tradition to treat historical subjects as a method of investigation—specifically, by collecting his materials systematically and critically, and then arranging them into a historiographic narrative. The Histories is the only work which he is known to have produced, a record of his "inquiry" on the origins of the Greco-Persian Wars, including a wealth of geographical and ethnographical information.
