"Moreover, you scorned our people, and compared the Albanese to sheep, and according to your custom think of us with insults. Nor have you shown yourself to have any knowledge of my race. Our elders were Epirotes, where this Pirro came from, whose force could scarcely support the Romans. This Pirro, who Taranto and many other places of Italy held back with armies. I do not have to speak for the Epiroti. They are very much stronger men than your Tarantini, a species of wet men who are born only to fish. If you want to say that Albania is part of Macedonia I would concede that a lot more of our ancestors were nobles who went as far as India under Alexander the Great and defeated all those peoples with incredible difficulty. From those men come these who you called sheep. But the nature of things is not changed. Why do your men run away in the faces of sheep?"
Letter from Skanderbeg to the Prince of Taranto ▬ Skanderbeg, October 31 1460
Këtu mund të flisni mbi historinë tonë duke sjellë fakte historike për ndriçimin e asaj pjese të historisë mbi të cilen ka rënë harresa e kohës dhe e njerëzve.

Shume rendome mes nesh, mbizoteron ideja se kombi yne, eshte nder me te vjetrit, ne mos me i vjetri ne Europe. Kjo ide u duk sikur hodhi rrenje, kur disa filologjiste perendimore, te shekullit te 19-te, I meshuan tezes se origjines iliro apo pellazge te shqiptareve. Por atje ketu, ne rrefimet e udhetareve te huaj per shqiptaret, del ideja se ky mendim nder shqiptaret, ka egzistuar me heret.

The Albanians regard themselves as the first nation of the world and despise both the Turks and the Europeans.

A ka ndonje baze historike, ky mendim i pergjithshem nder ne, apo eshte nje shenje euforizmi dhe superioriteti i kote e I pabazuar?
