New TED Talks: Wisdom from great writers on every year of life – Joshua Prager

19 04 2016

Books tell us who we’ve been, who we are, who we will be, too,” Prager says.
Macbeth: “…Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”
James 4:14: “Whereas you know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.”
Jesus Christ: “And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?”  Matthew 16:26
