One of the "best" to have ever lived was the 18th century amorous adventurer Giacomo Casonova.
I am serious. While the men were off plundering and killing for fame, fortune and glory (has anything really changed?), Casanova celebrated life and rejoiced in its simple pleasures. Moreover, he unselfishly provided comfort and love to all the lonely women.
Casanova has my vote.
As for Mother Theresa (sorry, Klewlis, she is not the Saint she is made out to be), the world is a better place without her!
Fanatical ranting is not just fine because it's eloquent. What if I ranted for the extermination of a people in an eloquent manner, would that make it fine? Rather, ranting, be it fanatical or otherwise, is fine if what is said is true and just. ---PeterD, in reply to IreneY and Annis
