He who seeks truth

I heard Moshe Safdie speak on TED and he concluded with this profound poem:

He who seeks truth shall find beauty

He who seeks beauty shall find vanity

He who seeks order shall find gratification

He who seeks gratification shall be disappointed

He who considers himself the servant of his fellow beings shall find the joy of self-expression

He who seeks self-expression shall fall into the pit of arrogance

Arrogance is incompatible with nature

Through nature, the nature of the universe and the nature of man, we shall seek truth

If we seek truth we shall find beauty

-Moshe Safdie, 1982

Smile today, it's good for you!

I just came across this video today and wanted to share it. 98.038% guaranteed to put a smile on your face. I recommend turning the sound up and viewing it fullscreen (which means you'll have to leave to see it on YouTube, but that's ok- I'll still be here when you get back).

See for his story and more videos.
