101 Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is an American politician and a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in the 2016 election.

I hope you're not Mexican or Muslim, or your "Donald" will have you deported if he gets in.

If you wins presidential election then please invite me to white house

I hope you be americas first woman president

I can still recall how gracious she was in 2008 when she lost the party nomination to Barack Obama. If anyone thinks she is a bitch (you can say the word, it's in the dictionary) then they have an awfully short memory. The facts are these: She is the most qualified candidate, man or woman. Trump has no presidential qualifications whatsoever. They way he is running his insulting campaign, he would get us attacked by somebody. My wife and I have talked it over and if Trump is elected, I believe we will be moving to Canada for our own safety.

107 Nirmala Srivastava Nirmala Srivastava Nirmala Srivastava, also known as Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, was the founder of Sahaja Yoga, a meditation technique and new religious movement.

Shri Mataji was born on 21 March 1923 in the centre of India it was equal day and equal night, hence she taught us all about balance in life. She has taken us out of our religious boxes and set us free by letting us feel the truth on our fingertip and on the central nervous system. To me I now know why I was created and the purpose for being here. We are all beautiful flowers of different colours shapes fragrances coming out of the Mother Earth to beautify her we are her creations no amount of money can force a seed to sprout, so think about it. Why not try it for free. Sahaja Yoga that is what Shri Mataji is all about.

Shree mataji gave us the priceless thing that is THOUGHTLESS AWARENESS

Showed the path of truth and peace

108 Felix Kjellberg

He usually donates about 5 million dollars to charity a year

Pewdiepie? In some ways, but Jesus's 4-5 billion(only today), to his 40 million.

109 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler was an Austrian politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was a central figure ...read more.

Ok, somehow hard to write here. I don't think Jesus isn't that big anymore. Maybe in the US but elsewhere? I don't know.

Hitler as a leader wasn't worse than Stalin or Mao Zedong (I mean the tough side; they all were bad persons who killed millions). But he had more influence on people and still has, than both of them.

So what I mean is:

He is responsible for USA and USSR to gain the state of superpowers. Without him, the atomic bomb, either wouldn't have been invented, or would have been later invented.

Also Germany wouldn't have lost it's state as a science centre of the whole world, which is still discussable by asking was it good or bad?! (They had scientists none reached till today).

First man on moon, as ridiculous it sounds, wouldn't have been without him that fast. It was the competition between Soviets and Americans, which was a result of WW2 and the engaging of German scientists after the war (What wouldn't have happened, if WW2 hasn't ...more

Convinced an entire nation to believe what he believed! He's very intelligent and cunning.

Without him the USSR probably would not had expanded as a world power causing the cold war, the British empire may not had collapsed and the disgust the world held for what the Nazis did led to a shift of human rights ideals. Its not impossible that japan never had the courage to attack the U.S. as well, leaving the U.S. still in isolation policies. The current world would be very different indeed. Even as evil as he is his impact on the world changed the 20th century.

He was a leader and had a nice moustache

112 Julius Caesar Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar easily stands as one of the most influential people in history. As one of the greatest military geniuses of Rome, and history, his conquests alone have ramifications felt to this day. His political actions added to this became the turning point for the Roman Republic becoming the Roman Empire. His ability as a politician was so great that the people, even before his conquests of Gaul and Britannia, loved, praised, and even obeyed him, to a degree. He was the first man in Roman history to be defied, and upon his a death a temple to honor him was constructed.

Roman general and statesman who invaded Britain and returned to Rome as a popular hero. He fell in love with Cleopatra the Egyptian queen who followed him to Rome. He was given a mandate by the people to rule as Caesar and was worshiped as a god in his lifetime. However, he was murdered by a group of trusted friends led by Brutus.

113 Guru Nanak Dev

Guru NANAK was the first incarnation of the GOD almighty in India, who gave all the spiritual help and power to those people who were totally untouchable and down trodden at that time. Not only by taking them in his arms but by really eating the food with them which was totally impossible at that time. He darely opposed against the present ruler of the country at that time by saying babar you are jhawar in his court, against his inhumanity acts around the country. He totally uplifted all those people who were considered as inhuman due to their castes. He really established a new era in India. I am proud to be a Sikh. SAT SHRI AKAAL (GOD IS TRUTH) - GSKOHLY

Son of Almighty

God on earth...

GREATEST SPIRITUAL PERSON BORN IN THIS EARTH. traveled LENGTH & BREATH OF THE WORLD AND PREACHED HUMANITY, PATH OF TRUTH, LOVE, AIM OF OUR LIFE, AND HOW TO MEET THE BELOVED LORD. GIVEN THE MANTRA OF WAHEGURU BY WHICH HUMAN BEING RECITING CAN E ONE WITH THE LORD. THERE ARE SO MANY ATTRIBUTES WHICH CANNOT BE DESCRIBED IN WORDS OF GURU NANAKDEV JI.

114 Bob Dylan Bob Dylan Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .

Someone missed the boat here. I have read a ton of absurd comments on other famous people and their impact on society whereas one of the most important and influential people of the last century and this one is notably absent: Bob Dylan. He changed the music world. Before him, there were very few artists who ever wrote about anything other than love songs. Bob Dylan changed lyric writing forever by writing about everything including topical songs from the early 60's protest movement. Bob Dylan did more for society than John Lennon ever did and Bob did it first. Bob was writing songs in support of the civil rights movement. Without his contributions, Rosa Parks would possibly never had decided to take that seat. He stuck up for the underdogs in society and he gave and continues to give to charity. John Lennon wrote Imagine, but that's it. Lennon was mostly a hypocrite who was not even a good father to his son Julian. Dylan however was a good father. Bob Dylan had an enormous influence ...more

I think he has every right to be on this list. He is quoted often and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He probably belongs on this list more than any other musician that is on here.

Great poet/singer/songwriter, but no way on this list

You totally deserves nobel for your nobel works

Stood up to the Nazis, won World War II, made The Soviet Union a superpower, scared America, and had a perfect mustache.

A crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. His best-known compositions include 9 symphonies, 5 piano concertos, 1 violin concerto, ...read more.

I love classical music! It's my favorite genre, but I would put Mozart and Bach as my favorites before Beethoven. Beethoven is really good though.

He reshaped music. He was the seed that would later grow and he bridged the classical era to romantic era.

Worlds best composer and lyricist

Thanks to Madonna the world is a better place, and some people denies it, well now imagine if Madonna would never be here, how the world would be... Just saying.

Madonna is the biggest international musical icon of all time - Alexandr

Even we hate it, she practically MADE pop music.

118 Friedrich Nietzsche Friedrich Nietzsche Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was a German philosopher, cultural critic, poet, and Latin and Greek scholar whose work has exerted a profound influence on Western philosophy and modern intellectual history.

He said what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and most of modern philosophy is based off of his books.

120 Robert Downey Jr. Robert Downey Jr. Robert John Downey Jr. is an American actor. His career has included critical and popular success in his youth, followed by a period of substance abuse and legal troubles, and a resurgence of commercial success in middle age.
