An excellent video

“Travel and reading are, to me, such extraordinary pleasures, and I couldn’t conceive of life without them. They don’t just teach you about the rest of the world, they teach you about where you come from.”

“I suppose the thing I most would like to have known, or been reassured about, is that in the world, what counts more than talent, more than energy, or concentration, or commitment, or anything else, is kindness. The more in the world you encounter kindness and cheerfulness, which is its kind of amiable uncle or aunt, the better the world always is. And all the big words: virtue, justice, truth, are dwarfed by the greatness of kindness.”

Stephen Fry. Yes.
