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.

Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me and be my friend."

"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival."

Actually, I got stuck wondering why "Just" wasn't before the third line. :)ReplyDelete
Sometimes the will to survive strengthens when given value.
Where did the Rambam say that? Google produces a whole bunch of cites in the name of Camus, but none seem to have a concrete source for that attribution.ReplyDelete
I think it's actually unknown who that quote comes from. I googled it also and it gets attributed to a bunch of people.ReplyDelete
Josh - It came up as Camus and oft-attributed to Maimonodies. I figured Camus came after the Rambam, so I put it to him.ReplyDelete
I guess if it allegedly came from the Rambam (despite sounding foreign in his mouth), it's less strange for Uncle Moishy to have used it. :-)ReplyDelete
