Values

"Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me and be my friend."
~ Maimonodies (Rambam)
"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival."
~ C. S. Lewis
On a slightly different note, these two videos were fantastic. The first is Evelyn Glennie on How to listen to music with your body, which is obviously about a lot more than that; not only is she a fascinating speaker and a great percussionist, she's deaf, which likely has helped her be able to understand and explain the ideas so well. The second is Keith Barry, and is just cool.
